The purpose of this survey was to find patterns in methods elementary general music teachers use to create a successful environment in the inclusive music classroom. Twenty-four participants completed the survey. The most frequently used accommodation and modification methods were considered a part of the participants' regular teaching practice. The participants also indicated they did not collaborate with other teachers very often, which conflicted with findings from other studies. Further research would benefit from a larger sample size to make results more generalizable.
