INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

The Media is the means of communicating to a large segment of people, such as television, radio and newspapers. The media constitute a vital means of transmitting information and knowledge among all segment of the society. [LORENZO, HERERRA & ANASTASIU, 2007]. The media is used to effect critical judgment, express personal opinion and convince the public to accept the beliefs, standards of behavior, and cultural models of the society [CARPIZO, 1999]. The media perform the functions of educating, informing or entertaining [DE LA ROSA, 1994]. The rapid development of media in the current dispensation is creating trends which has led to increase in the population of music consumers [CLEMONS & LANG, 2003; DEN, 2004]. Many of the media is adopted for the ultimate purpose of influencing and shaping consumer habits of music. [FORMAN, 2002]. Many music professionals are well-aware of this, and thereby  make consequential effort to appear on television,  radio interviews, and on the  Internet  to introduce new songs or performances to their followers so as to maximize  profit and media exposure of their work. The influence of the mass media on the musical tastes depends to a significant degree on the function and the use each medium.  Music preference refers  to peoples’ differences in the tastes for one  music to another. When Music is heard regularly by people daily in different parts of the world, through media outreach it affects people in various ways from emotion regulation to cognitive development, along with providing a means for self-expression. The study seeks to appraise the perception of media influence on music preferences.
