Abstract provided by Publisher
Every society must have some fixed moral standards to be able to maintain the social order
which is necessary for the proper functioning of the group. To comply with them, an individual
has to gradually assimilate attitudes, norms and values applicable in the community,
which is a subject of the social control. The process begins in an early childhood and
continues throughout life. Music can play a key role in it. This article refers to three types
of sources of research that focus on the effects of music on the establishment of moral attitudes in traditional societies: song lyrics, instrumental pieces with moralizing messages,
and doctrines of philosophers who are represented by Confucius.
