Welcome to the official website of Institute of Western Music & Speech
The Institute of Western Music & Speech was founded in 1960, when it was known as the "Association of Teachers of Western Music and Dramatic Art". It was the combined effort of qualified experienced teachers of Music, Speech and Drama, who dedicated themselves solely towards achieving a common objective - that of promoting, nurturing and developing the talents of the children of our country in the field of Western Music, Speech and allied subjects.

Today, the Institute (IWMS ) is a fully fledged, state-recognised Institute, incorporated in 1988,by the Act of Parliament No. 44 without share capital or other commercial attribute. It has grown in stature, and has established reputation as the largest, most progressive and innovative, local Examining Body in Sri Lanka conducting a record number of examinations island-wide, in Music, Speech and allied subjects in all grades including Diploma. The syllabuses compiled by qualified experienced examiners are in keeping with internationally accepted standards. The Institute met this challenge way back in 1971, when the conduct of foreign examinations was discontinued. The introduction of Written English Examinations and Speech Theory in 1984 was another step towards the expansion in the scope of examinations.    More >>
