Beaconhills College student Shenal Wickramasinghe is already flying high in the music industry with his own successful DJ business called Peregrine Beats.

The Year 7 student said he discovered DJ consoles at the age of four and knew then “DJing was in his blood”.

He got his first professional console at seven.

Shenal launched the business after researching peregrine falcons for a Year 5 project and realising that he many similar values and qualities to the bird.

“It was fast just like the music I make, it explores just like me and it always has a target,” he said.

Judging by the demand for his DJ services, Shenal is already sky high.

He has been booked for numerous birthdays, as well as performing arts festivals, basketball tournaments and discos.

He recently performed at the Berwick Campus’ Middle School Performing Arts Festival.

“I simply love having fun and going that extra mile to ensure everyone at the party has an incredible time,” Shenal said.

“I take the time to understand the crowd and play the appropriate music.”

He has saved up and bought much of his own equipment, while his school has supported him in producing his own original songs using art music production software called Ableton.

Having produced music now for two years he is constantly improving, learning new tips and tricks, while collaborating in his home recording studio with other artists.

Shenal studies music theory at school and is learning how to play the piano.

He said his ultimate dream was to be one of the best DJs and producers in the world.

“I want to inspire many other young kids – just like how Martin Garrix and NGHTMRE inspired me,” he said.

“My dream gig is to have a set at the three biggest festivals in the world: Tomorrowland, EDC and Ultra Music Festival.”
