The article is devoted to the analysis of the history and the current state of the study of World Music Cultures in the Russian higher musical education. The article mainly took into account the experience of St. Petersburg and Moscow as the most indicative. The process of introducing World music in training courses in Moscow and St. Petersburg included four stages. Within the framework of the first stage, ethnomusicology, the history of music was coordinated. Some problems of World music were highlighted by Russian scientists MI Ivanov–Boretsky and B Asafiev. In the second stage, RI Gruber's multilateral activities stand out, whose course, History of World Musical Culture included extensive material on musical cultures of Ancient East, including Iran, India, China, as well as medieval Chinese and Arab cultures. The third stage is characterized by the separation of World Music Cultures into a separate area of research and training courses. This process is demonstrated with the example of the creative activity of the composer and scientist JK Mikhailov. He based his approach on the positions of musical cultural studies and combined with a training course with several scientific directions: the history of music, music Oriental studies, and ethnomusicology. The modern stage parameters of the course, of nonEuropean musical cultures, are indicated. The spread of the course in Russia and neighboring countries, the republics of the USSR, is shown. The author gives examples of the programs and the manuals for this course, and indicates the position of training in the field of postgraduate and doctoral studies. This direction is developing in four modern schools of Russian musical Oriental Studies: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk, and Far Eastern.
