Jolly Music is a stuctured and progressive music teaching programme for Infant and Primary school settings. It provides a well-planned music curriculum, giving the highest quality teaching to the children through appropriate materials even for young non-native speaking learners.

Using a multi-sensory approack to teaching, children become instant music-makers through traditional, playground rhymes and songs; they are introduced to musical elements such pulse, rhythm, pitch, tone and tempo using simple songs, rhymes and games.

Lessons are carefully structured to build on key musical skills such as listening, singing in tune, inner hearing, and ultimately reading and writing music. Taught in this way, Music supports children’s motivation, enthusiasm and confidence in the classroom. Research has shown that good music lessons improves and enhances learning in all other subjects.

Jolly music serves as an excellent introduction to the Kodály approach which is based on the student ́s voice as a natural musical tool. This means that anyone can be taught or learn through their singing voice. Using this philosophy authors Cyrilla Rowsell and David Vinden, both experienced practitioners and teachers of the Kodály method, have developed the Jolly Music programme.

This fun and practical-based training course demonstrates the use of simple songs, rhymes, games and creative activities throughout the day which are suitable for teachers and parents in any educational setting, especially those wising to teach or compliment the instruction of English as a second language.
