Description In his Latin treatise Complexus effectuum musices, Johannes Tinctoris (cca. 1435–1511) describes various effects of music. We can consider them higher aims of music education at that time. It is possible to ask whether they are usable in the same function even nowadays. The music teachers should show understanding for young people’s prevailing musical preferences at both primary and secondary schools. Simultaneously, good popular music could sound more frequently in the music education lessons, besides classical music.
