TV, radio, mass media family tastes “the law of the crowd” or mainstream As a result, most teenagers of our school prefer to listen to pop and club music. They don’t play a musical instruments, don’t attend musical concerts. According to the results of the research, most of the families prefer to listen to pop music too. We can’t agree that the 2nd hypothesis was right: musical tastes of parents and children differ nowadays.
