Summary/Abstract: The present text interprets the appearance of the book called Music for Everyone, written by the prominent Bulgarian musicologist Ivan Kamburov back in 1937 in the context of the emergence of the public radio in Bulgaria. That process created the need to promote a number of musicological issues among a broad listening audience – aesthetic, historical and theoretical issues referred to the function of fundamental styles, genres, forms and processes of music. Alongside the detailed comparative analysis of the structure, significance and function of Kamburov’s work, the paper highlights some aspects of the social environment, the attempt to form musiccultural consciousness, and specific points of the cultural strategy. Among them are the specific focus on folklore music and its significance for professional music, popular 146 at the time music practices and music. The paper highlights the broad humanitarian basis, vivid modern reflection, emotional fullness, reliance on contemporary knowledge and technologies combined in the author’s professional method, through which the popular Music for Everyone affected the broad public at its time. That could serve today as a motivating example of the specific professional educational methods in the field of music.
