The Johann Sebastian Bach Musikschule was founded in the year 2000 in Vienna. It grew exponentially as it spread into several locations, with the main location for JSBM Classic and JSBM Popakademie being in the Gasometer.
In 2015, the late Andreas Karabaczek who, at that time, was the Austrian ambassador for Indonesia, saw that the Amadeus Music School's quality was on par with the music schools in Austria. He envisioned a partnership between Amadeus and a music school in Austria which will enable it to enhance its quality and send students to Austria. He asked Prof. Werner Schulze to find an Austrian music school which shared the same vision as Amadeus and wishes to partner with it. Prof. Werner Schulze approached the Johann Sebastian Bach Musikschule.
The Johann Sebastian Bach Musikschule was founded in the year 2000 in Vienna. It grew exponentially as it spread into several locations with the main location for JSBM Classic and JSBM Popakademie being in the Gasometer. The music school currently has 75 teachers and more than a thousand students. It is affiliated with MDW Vienna, offering classes for gifted children and preparation courses to enter the music university. It has several international partners and Amadeus is its first partner in South-East Asia.
Every year, teachers from JSBM are sent to Jakarta to teach and teachers from Amadeus are sent to Vienna to learn. The Austria Music Week is a yearly program in Amadeus where the JSBM teachers give workshops and masterclasses to students in Amadeus which are showcased in a closing concert. In 2021, Noah Joseph Wimandjaja, an Amadeus student, has been accepted to the "Gifted Class" program at JSBM as a bridge to enter the MDW Vienna. He also became a member of the Young Masters ensemble.
