Pearl was raised by a pair of classical piano teachers (Sandra Rhein teaches private lessons, plays church organ and has a degree in flute; Dr. Robert Rhein is a Professor of Piano Performance at Bethel College in Mishawaka, Indiana). She studied classical piano and violin starting just before her third birthday. As a teenager Pearl discovered musical theatre and became a crack accompanist by playing piano for all her friends. After college Pearl started learning bluegrass and country fiddle while working at a theme park in Virginia, and while pursuing her MFA in Acting at UC San Diego Pearl borrowed an accordion for a production of "Twelfth Night". Since then she has made a career out of being a versatile multi-instrumental actor, adept at multiple musical styles & instruments and able to pick up new ones very quickly!
