From our humble beginnings as a recording studio, we have always valued music and audio production as one of the pillars of art and creativity. Harnessing this value and developing the industry was our primary objective in launching Pearlbay Institute. What separates us from the crowd is our focus on the student,

Our mission is to create a supportive and creative environment, giving you the means to forge your path to becoming a successful professional in the music industry!

We invest heavily in state-of-the-art facilities to give our students the best environment to achieve their academic and artistic potential! From the Audient Creative Hub to our esteemed Pearlbay Grand Studio, we have the tools to provide you with the right practical experience and know-how. The Grand Studio is home to a top of the line Audient 8024 Heritage Edition Custom Analog console and other high-end equipment that is up to international audio standards.

Our commitment to quality has led us to join hands with one of Sri Lanka’s most celebrated Composers and Audio Engineers, Ranga Dasanayake. With the shared goal of growing Sri Lanka’s music industry, he leads the Pearlbay institute today as it’s Dean and head of academics!

The Pearlbay academic panel has highly experienced local industry professionals with the common objective of giving the best possible education to our students. Pearlbay institute also hosts regular guest lectures and workshops by International Audio professionals with a wide range of experience in music and other media from different parts of the world!
