Given the high-value of its resources for teaching music, as posed in the 70s by the works of John Paynter, Peter Aston, Robert Murray Schafer, Gertrud Meyer-Denkmann, Brian Dennis and others, it is easy to find literature that places Contemporary Classical Western Music as one of the top dominant trends in the field of Music Education. Our research aimed to detect the present familiarity towards this music on the part of students in their last stage for the awarding of the Primary-school Music-teacher degree in Andalusia. Also it aimed to reveal keys for possible actions to improve this familiarity. The proposed research was pursued following paradigms of the quantitative statistical methodology, with the aid of the computer program SPSS. An instrument was built, piloted, validated and concurrently-validated on a related population. Results were disappointing, putting on the table the real dimensions of a problem, together with a variety of starting-points where a plan could be built to effectively resolve the encountered situation.
