Every teacher should absolutely be managing his/her own classroom. If there is a deferred responsibility, students pick up on that, and begin to act out more for the specials teacher who adopts a 'Wait 'til your father gets home' mentality'. However, as the regular classroom teacher who spent more time with the students, I would always involve myself in the situation as a follow up. Taking the misbehaving student aside for a private "Hey, what's going on in (music) class?" chat could be very revealing, and lets the students clearly know that all the teachers are working in concert to educate and nurture the child.
