The purpose of this study was to examine rhythm-labeling ability and sight-singing self-efficacy in middle school choral students. Participants were 118 chorus students in grades six (n = 46), seven (n = 37), and eight (n = 35). Students completed a rhythm-labeling ability assessment and a scale to measure sight-singing self-efficacy. Assessment and data were converted to linear measures using the Multifaceted Rasch Rating Scale Model and analyzed using linear regression to see if rhythm-labeling ability predicted sight-singing self-efficacy. Results indicated that rhythm-labeling ability explained 12.6% of the variance in sight-singing self-efficacy (F(1, 116) = 16.707, p < .001; f 2 =.14). Implications for classroom teaching and learning are discussed.
