In the interwar years the press was the main medium that provided specialist knowledge, current information, or entertainment. It is from the articles in the press of that time that we can learn a lot about the universal music education in that period. These articles are an invaluable source of knowledge: both in the field of educational practice and in the sphere of ideas, thoughts, discourse, and normative and axiological assumptions. The present paper is a comprehensive approach to the issues concerning universal music education that were discussed in specialist and socio-cultural periodicals of that time. The purpose of the study is not to analyze in detail but to present a general description of the content found in the available sources. Nevertheless, even this superficial treatment enables one to perceive the state of education and the principal themes of discussions on music education held during the interwar period. The survey of the interwar press takes into account over a dozen titles representing teaching/methodology journals and some periodicals dealing with other subjects. They are “Muzyka w Szkole” [Music at school], “Śpiew w Szkole” [Singing at school], “Nowa Muzyka w Szkole” [New Music at school], “Śpiewak Śląski” [the Silesian singer], “Przegląd Muzyczny” [Music review]” “Chór” [Choir], “Orkiestra” [Orchestra], “Muzyka Kościelna” [Churhc music], “Hosanna”, “Wiadomości Muzyczne” [Music news], “Muzyka” [Music], “Kwartalnik Muzyczny” [Music quarterly], “Muzyka Polska” [Polish music], “Lwowskie Wiadomości Muzyczne i Literackie” [Lvov literary and music news]. The characteristics of the content of these periodicals provokes the following reflections: despite the passage of time many questions and problems of universal music education have not lost their relevance at all; both articles on teaching methods and the texts discussing theory can be highly inspiring even today, not only to scholars interested in the subject but to ordinary readers as well.
