Listening to recorded music goes far back in Hungarian school education. We have data showing that during the music lessons of the different types of schools recorded music was used in as early as the 1930s , and the new school type, the eight-year elementary school established in 1945, continued this tradition . It is especially worth exploring the use of recorded music in the elementary schools of the 1960s because it was the first time in the history of listening to music in school which left not only written evidence to the researchers but also the actual vinyl records that students listened to during music lessons. The presentation of musical instruments has always played an important role in listening to music in school. The current study explores that part of the musical education program of the 1960s, which introduced students to the piano with the help of the curriculum, textbooks, workbooks and recordings.

Keywords: elementary school, music education, listening to music, piano, curriculum, textbook, workbook, record.
