The relationship between self-efficacy and achievement in college music majors' and minors' interval recognition/pitch perception was examined. Subjects were 28 university students enrolled in two beginning ear training classes in the music curriculum. Subjects were asked to predict their score (self-efficacy) on an ensuing interval recognition examination. The examination was then administered. Upon conclusion of the test, scores were tabulated which indicated interval recognition achievement. The correlation between self-efficacy (predicted scores) and interval recognition (actual achievement) was examined and found to be .74-1» which is significant at the .001 level (df = 27). Self-efficacy and achievement are significantly related for interval recognition of college music majors and minors.
