This position paper likes to stress the role and importance of performance based education in NIME like subjects. It describes the ‘klankontwerp’ learning line at the ‘school of the arts Utrecht’ in its department Music Technology. Our educational system also reflects the way that we could treat performance in the NIME community as a whole. The importance of performing with our instruments other then in the form of a mere demonstration should get more emphasis.
