    This paper discusses the development of a peer-learning and assessment method involving
    undergraduate popular music students in group performance modules. What is learned through
    rehearsing and performing in a band is intrinsically collective and this poses problems where we
    are obliged to give individual participants discrete scores for their contributions. Peer assessment
    may assist in this and improve student learning in group work. An approach that involves band
    members assessing each other on the basis of personal attributes is explored.
