Teach music skills in a fun & effective way with Jolly Music!

Jolly Music is based on the tried and tested principles of Hungarian composer and music educator, Zoltán Kodály. Using this philosophy, Cyrilla Rowsell and David Vinden, both experienced practitioners and teachers of the Kodály method, have developed the Jolly Music programme.

Jolly Music is a structured and progressive programme for teaching music skills to children. It is a multi-sensory programme, with all the teaching done through singing. This approach enables children to become instant music makers without the need to learn how to play an instrument.

How does Jolly Music work?

Through a repertoire based on playground rhymes and songs, children become aware of musical elements including pulse, rhythm, pitch, loudness and speed. Activities and musical games support multi-sensory learning and make the lessons fun. The singing lessons are carefully structured to build the key musical skills of listening, singing in tune, inner hearing, and ultimately reading and writing music. Taught in this way, classroom music will build children’s motivation, enthusiasm and confidence, and lay the foundation for a lifetime of enjoyment.
