“Music, once admitted to the soul, becomes a sort of spirit and never dies.”
Who Are We?
Music Oven was established by Lahiru Perera and Viresh Cooray both who have graduated overseas and are professionals in the music trade. Lahiru Perera needs no introduction, as he is a leading player in the local music industry, both on TV and Radio as a producer, composer and singer with a string of hits to his credit. The vision of Music Oven was to give every aspiring musician/technician an opportunity to follow a prestigious music course locally, to make these courses purse friendly, and also to establish an institution where Sri Lankans could receive the finest education in the areas of audio production and engineering. The other factor is that the students will have the unique opportunity to work with leading personalities in the music industry whilst studying.
The courses are essentially theory based, and classes consist of practical tutorials which take place in our purpose built state-of-art studio and dedicated media production suite running industry standard music technology software. Furthermore the Music Oven students have access to these facilities outside of class time, are expected to work in groups and independently complete their assignments. To be a successful musician, or even to successfully gain employment into today’s progressive music industry requires a lot of hard work, focus, commitment and passion, it also requires a strong set of competent skills and a well-developed creative muscle. Music Oven has a proven track record of producing industry ready graduates, and is the springboard to a successful musical career. If you strive to be a successful musician or sound engineer, with a passion for the music industry, then the Music Oven is the stepping stone for you.
