The Music Handbook - Level 3

The Music Handbook - Level 3 - Jolly Music


zThe Music Handbook Level 3 has been developed so that any teacher can teach music in school, even those without any music experience.

A video showing a lesson from Jolly Music Level 3 can be seen here

In this video, Jolly Music Author Cyrilla Rowsell leads the children in an activity based around the song Row, Boys, Row. The children learn about singing in canon, and use solfa as they develop their understanding of key musical concepts.
