Abstract: The purpose of this study was to determine whether differences existed between entering freshmen two-year and four-year college music students by group and by sex in personality characteristics, value structures, and musical aptitude. Three tests were given in this study--the Omnibus Personality Inventory (OPI) was given to determine personality characteristics; the Study of Values (SOV) was given to determine value structures; and the Musical Aptitude Profile (MAP) was given to determine musical aptitude. The two-year college sample consisted of students entering music programs at Virginia Western Community College and Tidewater Community College in Virginia. The four-year college sample consisted of students entering music programs at Madison College in Virginia. Both two-year colleges and the four-year college are state supported public institutions. Testing was done in freshman music theory classes.
