The main issue is teenagers’ development of civil value orientations through their involvement in educational process to develop their personal attitudes and value orientation. The paper defines the notion of value orientation as one of civil education’s structural elements, and defines a model of value orientations. We research teenagers’ preferences for values that influence their civil position and their behaviour. Music is critical, characterised by maximal volume, aggressive singing, frequent repetition of rhythmic structures, and a sharp and heavy music accent. Music is one of the parts of society that develops civic values and gives citizens the intellectual potential of European civil society.
