The idea that music might have moral implication and significance seems to be a persistent and enduring one. As a vehicle of expression, music inevitably weaves itself into the fabric of human thought and action. The belief that music can profoundly desensitize, influence, condition, and inspire audiences is not indebted to recent discoveries. Besides, theorists throughout history agreed that music could profoundly influence human character and shape morality. Therefore, this paper looks into the emerging issues in morality and music education in Nigeria knowing that moral knowledge and understanding are prerequisites for moral action. The paper adopted social cognitive theory of morality in an attempt to explain how moral thinking, in interaction with other psychosocial determinants, governs individual moral conduct. Several music education typologies were suggested for moral development in the Nigeria society.
