In the era of globalization, with increasing migration, the coherent power of music is promoted in a way and as a means of maintaining its own tradition. Motivated by modern living that is characterized by the dominance of global culture in all its forms of technical and technological achievements, we have explored in the recent years the trend in the musical tradition and the modern tendencies in the educational system. In the Republic of Macedonia, which is a multiethnic country, music in the field of education is represented by all institutional, as well as many noninstitutional forms such as CAS-es (cultural artistic societies). We decided to observe the role of music education in maintaining the musical tradition of the Albanian population. Research in 2012 carried out in Skopje included basic educational institutions teaching in the Albanian language and the CAS-es. According to the field information, musical tradition is represented in the schools through a segment of curriculum in the subject––Music Education. All four CAS-es that are very active in Skopje are confirmed as the main nuclei in the cultivation of folk musical heritage that is realized through instrumental, vocal, and dance sections. Their common characteristics are essential for the usage of traditional instruments and performance of traditional music and dance repertoire specific to the local community. Public musical performances that are held in the country and abroad are particularly important for the dissemination of musical tradition given the continuous flow of the process of its modification as a result of accommodating the imported music culture. Keywords: Music education, Music tradition, Dissemination, Modern education.
