The purposes of this study were to examine relationships between three listener characteristics (college major, sex, school music performance experience) and college students' (N = 300) attitudes toward nine types and styles of music. Significant differences (p < .05) were found in favor of music majors (n = 100) toward classical and contemporary classical music, and in favor of non-music majors (n = 200) toward rock music. Females expressed significantly more favorable attitudes than males toward country and spiritual music.
