Ensiklomusika Music School was initially established in Jakarta by Rose Mystica back in 2012. It started with five-year-old Rose’s curiosity about musical instruments. Rose, Ensiklomusika Music School's founder, grew an interest in learning the keyboard when she was eight. It was soon developed to be a public performance and songwriting.
The Indonesia-born musician received her first student when she was 15, a life-changing moment that helped define her as a music teacher and Ensiklomusika Music School today. In the beginning, she planned for Ensiklomusika Music School to teach music and instruments only, yet it had transformed into something much bigger.
Ensiklomusika Music School is now an educational institution that educates both students and parents to appreciate the process of learning music, instead of focusing solely on musical ability. It is a platform that signifies holistic education through music; the importance of soft skills gained in learning music. Most importantly, it has become a foundation for her and her educators to learn the skills needed to educate them.
Her vision influences the name as well. Ensiklomusika Music School is a portmanteau of encyclopedia and music. It combines the education process, the theory of music, and the execution of playing musical instruments. Rose shapes every school's curriculum to be holistic and student-centered, which focuses on building the student's character - patience, hard work, appreciation, and consistency. She believes that the result of instrument ability is rather complementary; it will take care of itself.
Ensiklomusika Music School concentrates on using music for early and primary education as we work to improve their soft skills. Every educator in the school has to collaborate with parents to have the right mindset towards their children learning music. They utilize toys, physical movements, storytelling, and other learning collateral to match their abstract thinking routes. Ensiklomusika Music School is highly particular about shaping the right youth for a global future.
The school also tries to enforce the same mentality onto their adult students. Rose shapes the adult curriculums to be able to resemble therapies. The young musician and her educators help shape the right approach to music among her adult students, to enjoy the learning process and the soft skills gained along the way. With these, most Ensiklomusika Music School's adult graduates admitted to seeing self-progression with their music lessons, where they discover newfound confidence and reignite self-belief.
The self-belief and progression significantly fuel Ensiklomusika Music School's students to undergo the challenging ABRSM or Rockschool examinations. At this stage, they usually have understood that learning music requires time, effort, patience, consistency in practices; it does more than musical prowess and life skills.
Also, Ensiklomusika Music School constantly encourages educators to be holistic, international teachers capable of handling students from all over the globe. So far, Ensiklomusika Music School is the only music school in Indonesia that focuses on the expatriate, followed by the national markets. Rose has managed to customize their school to cater to the international residents of Indonesia. All of Ensiklomusika Music School's teachers speak English fluently, and the school also services musical instruments rental for long-term, temporary expatriates living in Indonesia. The school has developed a holistic solution where their students can rent a piano for their homes and then have home-based music lessons with Ensiklomusika Music School teachers.
Rose’s younger self's vision is to create an educational experience for Indonesia and the world, and Ensiklomusika Music School has helped her realize it. It is to disrupt conventional thoughts and music teaching methods. The Ensiklomusika Music School team and Roda have built the school to be a holistic institution.
Ensiklomusika Music School is a musical education experience.
