Jolly Music

Jolly Music

Jolly Learning was founded in 1987 and started selling the first of the Jolly Phonics products five years later. It uses the synthetic phonics method of teaching the letter sounds in a way that is fun and multi-sensory, enabling children to become fluent readers.


Since then we have been part of the remarkable transition that has made this kind of teaching mainstream around the world.


We not only publish materials for the teaching of literacy, but also for teaching music skills.

They are used in over 100 countries around the world with some adopting Jolly Phonics as government policy.


Jolly Learning is an independent British publisher and is owned by Christopher Jolly. Although Chris chose the name of the company, the name Jolly Phonics was the choice of the authors!
