Computer programming supports learning of key concepts in audio and music technology education, including digital audio processing and sound synthesis. However, programming is a subject that can pose a challenge–particularly for students whose primary focus of study is not pure computer science. This paper examines cross level peer tutoring as a method for supporting audio students learning programming as part of an audio processing module. It will examine the viability of this scheme as a method for enhancing student self-efficacy and achievement. The paper will explore the benefits and issues from the point of view of the tutees as well as the tutors through both quantitative and qualitative research.
