Networked Music Performance (NMP) allows musicians to work collaboratively at a distance, however several major technical challenges are faced when working this way. These include latency and reduced audio quality. There are many practical uses for NMP within music and audio education, including delivery of courses, instrumental tuition and remote recording sessions. The University of the Highlands and Islands and Glasgow Caledonian University use NMP in music and audio technology courses. Case studies are presented, and challenges of working in this way highlighted. Students find time management and communication challenging, rather than more technical aspects of collaboration.
