The article actualizes the problem of the anthropological dimensions of music art on the basis of the influence of aesthetic emotions. The basis adopted three main provisions. First, the essence of the Genesis sound and emotional complexes appears in their emotional interpretation. We investigated the emotional influence of music on people in the history of aesthetic thought. Provided that the original essence of music is the history of human consciousness and subconsciousness. The leading concept in the anthropology of music, there are phenomena that are inherent as a deep structure in the development of European culture. Music expresses the consciousness on the physical, mental and spiritual levels. Culture as one of the highest forms of social organization of human consciousness is forced to structure his consciousness through the external form, including through art. This avoids a state of isolation, an inability to develop.

Music, unlike other arts, and develops a person's ability to holistic perception. This ability is generated by music, is then in all kinds of human activities and exacerbate the perception of aesthetic values. Acting on the moral qualities of students, music is a means of formation of Outlook of the person. Using the associative and musical means, the composer directs the thoughts and emotions of the listener at a certain object, turning a pointless sentiment in the higher feelings and aspirations of targeted. The analysis of influence of musical art on human, proven antropolog music.

Musical art models using the intonation of the question of value wealth, the logic and the dynamics of human mirootnosheniya, organizes spiritual communication between people and generations. Acting on the identity of his socotroco, the music evokes a very specific set of associations that is the basis of the understanding of man's musical content in all its facets. The latter is national, temporary, individual-psychological, which is addressed to the outside world, or reflects the inner condition. This complex constitutes the core of knowledge about the person formed a specific historical period, specific social conditions that carries music. Music art summarizes, updates and enriches the experience of mankind, is a means of formation of a spiritualized relationship to the world, which are based on abilities and needs of human aesthetic experiences. The music establishes the experience of age, generally expressed in philosophical thinking.
