This study aimed to adapt Primary Measures of Music Audiation-PMMA, developed by Edwin E. Gordon (1979), to the Turkish language for 48-72 month-old children. The participants consisted of 148 children who attend independent kindergartens/nursery classes affiliated to the Ankara Provincial Directorate of National Education in the central districts of, Çankaya and Mamak in Ankara Province. The data regarding the children and their parents' personal information was obtained through the "Demographics Form." Data to measure children's musical audiation were collected with the PMMA. Within the scope of the content validity analysis of the PMMA, content validity ratio (CVR) and content validity indexes (CVI) were calculated based on the opinions of field experts. CVR and CVI values of all items were 1. In addition, item discrimination and item difficulty values were examined. The average difficulty level was 0.65 for the Tonal test and 0.63 for the Rhythm test. Within the scope of the reliability analysis of the scale, Spearman-Brown and KR-20 internal consistency coefficients were examined. The KR-20 values were calculated as 0.71 for the Tonal test, 0.61 for the Rhythm test, and 0.80 for the compound total test, indicating a reliable measurement. The study reveals that the adapted PMMA is a valid and reliable measurement instrument for 48-72 month-old Turkish children.
