About Rock 'N Learn
Rock 'N Learn began as an idea that would help children learn by putting educational material to music with a current sound -- the kind of music that kids enjoy and find motivating. Now with over 50 products, we have sold millions of audio/book and video programs to teachers and parents throughout the United States, Canada, and other countries.

Rock 'N Learn programs help students learn math, phonics, reading, early childhood, social studies, Spanish, test-taking strategies, writing, and science. Our DVDs incorporate music with exciting, colorful imagery.
Headquartered in Conroe, Texas, just north of Houston, Rock 'N Learn is owned and operated by its founders, Richard and Brad Caudle.

Working as a school psychologist in 1986, Richard saw the need for multi-sensory learning programs using the styles of music that kids love. He consulted his younger brother Brad, an accomplished musician, to record their first program to help kids learn multiplication facts. Strong sales of this recording in the school specialty and book markets led to other programs and the start of a successful company.

Richard and Brad never varied from their number one goal of providing children with programs that would make learning easier and fun. Brad's wife Melissa, a former second-grade teacher, writes material and coordinates educational research for Rock 'N Learn. Richard's wife, Kathie, manages our sales and marketing team.

Rock 'N Learn programs have received numerous awards such as Dr. Toy, Parents' Choice, iParenting, National Parenting Publications, Learning Magazine Teachers' Choice, Early Childhood News, National Parenting Center, and Parent's Guide to Children's Media. Our programs lead in the areas of quality and customer satisfaction based on surveys of school supply stores.

As documented in case studies by numerous school districts, Rock 'N Learn programs work. The overwhelmingly positive response from parents, teachers, and kids generates tremendous word-of-mouth support. By consulting with educators and featuring talented vocalists and performers, Rock 'N Learn will continue to develop quality audio and video programs that hold interest and help kids learn.

My Take on the DVD
This DVD and the workbooks (that come with the audio program) were amazingly complete. My wife used to teach Spanish in a few Elementary Schools and we sat down with our girls with our girls to watch and learn from this DVD. I was impressed with the DVD and accompanying materials. The DVD itself had a ton of materials on it. Two hours of in-depth learning and much of the learning was surrounded with rock 'n roll which my girls loved (as they love to dance).

We love incorporating Spanish into our girls life and I love the fact that through this DVD set and the workbook materials that came with it my girls have learned that Spanish can be fun. The songs are ones that stick with you and the amount of vocab that they have crammed into this two hour DVD is simply remarkable! Even as an adult I found myself having fun, and it was a great refresher formt he Spanish that I had in high school!
