Chapter 3 addresses pertinent structural elements of successful middle school music classrooms, including acknowledgment of student diversity and the music classroom as a safe place. These elements not only encourage development of student musical independence and musicianship, they promote the empowerment of adolescent music students during development. When adolescent students feel safe to be themselves in their music classroom, they are more willing to try new tasks and take musical risks. As a result, musicality and technical skills are likely to flourish; simply put, more learning can and will take place. In addition, it is the responsibility of music teachers of adolescents to model appropriate behavior, especially with regard to the treatment of others.
