The article presents results of theoretical and empirical research in quite an unexplored sphere of psychology – social perception of art. The research goal was to investigate socio-psychological factors of perception of music. Specific interconnection was hypothesized between pupils’ personal values and their preference of different musical trends. To explore personal values, Sh. Schvartz’s technique was used, and particularities of music perception were elicited with the use of custom-designed original questionnaire. To take part in the experiment, there were recruited 9th, 10th and 11th grade pupils of Moscow secondary general schools. It has been proved at statistically significant level (р < 0,05) that pupils’ preference of classical music correlates directly with “independence” and “stimulation”, but inversely with “hedonism”. R’n’B music preference correlates inversely with “independence”, but directly with “hedonism”. The Russian rock lovers have low scores for such value scales as “kindness” and “achievements”, but high scores for “stimulation” and “hedonism” scales.

Keywords: social psychology of art, social perception, personal values, perception of music, senior scholars
