The purpose of this study was to determine what changes occurred in values in music education from 1950 to 1970, as presented in written value statements from the Music Educators Journal, and to determine the direction(s) of change. Eighteen categories of value under four general headings (Social Values, Psychological Values, Aesthetic Values, and Futuristic Values) were identified and were the focus of the study.
