    Over the past few years, instrumental performance has been subject to considerable
    research in this journal and elsewhere. A great deal of this research has concentrated on
    the practice strategies and individual lessons, which most students undertake in preparing
    as performers. Little has been done on raising standards of performance on a larger scale
    within the context of a large music department. This article describes the outcomes of a
    two-year programme undertaken with undergraduates at Barnsley College. It looks
    speci®cally at the scope for curriculum changes over that period and the way the various
    individual aspects of performance lessons are brought together through a weekly class
    which focuses on the demands of a public performance and the strategies required to
    prepare for that event.
