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, they 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 skills, social studies, Spanish, test-taking strategies, writing, and science. Their videos incorporate music with exciting and colorful imagery. Working as a school psychologist in 1986, Richard saw the need for multisensory learning programs using the styles of music that kids love. He teamed with 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 over 200 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 programs that hold interest and help kids learn.
