As one of the excellent traditional Chinese cultures, the folk song carries the national spirit and is an indispensable part of Chinese culture. The general goal of the Compulsory Education Art Curriculum Standards (2022) puts forward the requirements of "feeling and understanding China's profound cultural heritage and the major achievements of the Party's century-old struggle, and inheriting and carrying forward the excellent traditional Chinese culture". As an important part of primary school music class teaching, music teachers' understanding of the preference of folk songs will play a positive role in the inheritance and promotion of folk songs in primary schools. In this research, a questionnaire survey was conducted on the folk song preferences of 358 primary students by taking a random sample from 4 primary schools in Wudang, Guiyang, China. The questionnaire used a five-point Likert scale, and was investigated from four dimensions: "musical attitude", "musical style", "liking reason" and "learning path". In this research, Excel and SPSS are used to analyze the data. The result showed that primary school students are not highly interested in folk songs and they like new folk songs most, learning music knowledge in the music class is the main reason why primary school students like to learn folk songs. In addition, the research also found that music classes and mobile electronic devices are the main ways for primary school students to learn folk songs.
