Music teachers work with their students in unique circumstances that can create a potential “perfect storm.” This includes the close music teacher/student one to one relationship, teaching behind closed doors, physically illustrating technical approaches which involve touching students, using evocative language to shape musical interpretations. For those inclined, these valid and useful teaching techniques can slide down a slippery slope to sexual abuse. The results are traumatic. While a majority of teachers and professional musicians do not violate ethical norms, the #MeToo Movement has become a subject that demands attention. This Webinar will cover 1) the “perfect storm” in music teaching that may predispose some teachers and students to engage in unethical enactments; 2) the addiction to celebrity and the “star” system that are relevant in ethical violations in music teaching and the performing arts; 3) the role of the University/Institution in managing a traumatic and life-altering situation.
