Beamz for Special Education

A user is playing the Beamz with a head mounted stickBeamz Interactive Music System transforms your classrooms, pull-out rooms, community programs and school therapy settings into model 21st Century learning environments where knowledge acquisition, skill building and self-expression take place through music. Beamz is universally designed so it is accessible to students of all learning and physical abilities – it’s switch and adaptive keyboard accessible too! Beamz’ versatility in its application context is unmatched. 


Beamz helps your students on:

  • cause and effect
  • directionality
  • sequencing
  • fine and gross motor skills
  • common core subjects
  • rewards or incentives
  • recreation and more!



Beamz is universally designed so that you can provide as much or as little support needed to ensure a successful experience. Students with Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, Spinal Cord Injuries and lack of fine or gross motor skills, are all provided equal access to a unique music-making experience. Beamz lasers can be triggered by:

  • Physically interrupting the laser beam with any body part or object, such as head pointers.
  • Keyboards and Alternative Keyboards
    All twelve instruments sounds, page swapping and rhythm track activation have correlating key equivalents. This enables players to use standard and adaptive keyboards.
  • Switches
    Make Beamz switch accessible by connecting a programmable switch interface. Programmable interfaces allow you to pair key commands to specified jack ports. You can then plug in multiple switches for activating instruments sounds, page swapping and rhythm track start/stop. The number of switches is dependent on how many ports are provided on the particular interface device you’re using – the number of jacks vary from model to model.
  • Interactive Whiteboards and Touch Screens
    Beamz software interface is a near replication of the Beamz laser controller. Players can activate lasers and function buttons by touching the lasers and buttons on the screens of touchscreen enabled devices – laptops, tablets, iOS devices and interactive whiteboards.
  • Tobii EyeGaze
    Beamz has created a customised version of its Windows Player Software purposefully designed to work in conjunction with the Tobii Eye Gaze.

Beamz – How It Works

Imagine yourself making unbelievable sounding music by moving your hands through laser beams!

Beamz laser controller with four beams showing and interrupted by a player's fingers

Beamz is an interactive music product that enables anyone to make music by moving your hands through laser beams with pre-programmed songs. Each interactive song has a background rhythm track which you start by pressing the play button on the Beamz controller; then each laser beam is setup to be a different instrument or sound effect. As you move your hand through a laser beam, you’re adding that instrument into the playback of the song. The Beamz controller lights up 4 red laser beams, and each song has up to 12 different instruments for you to add into the playback of the song so there’s lots of options for you to get creative making the music. The centre button is a SWAP button for you to switch over to other instruments while you’re playing a song.

Beamz also includes a recording feature so you can capture your remixes to playback for yourself or to share with your friends.

The Beamz music store This is an external link library has thousands of songs, hundreds of instruments and endless possibilities.

Enjoy making creative, good sounding music in minutes. There’s no complicated learning curve to get started with the Beamz. Beamz’ patented technology and interactive songs enable you to sound great the first time, and every time. Play at home, parties or events.

No matter the music style you like, you’ll sound awesome the first time and every time you play, you’ll want to share your masterpieces with your friends and family.


What is an interactive song? How are interactive songs different from songs purchased from iTunes or other digital download stores?

Interactive songs are made for you to experience music making and to alter the direction of an interactive song by your creative choices, whereas traditional music is published for you to enjoy just by listening or dancing to it. Making music with the Beamz is a dynamic, creative experience that enables anyone to make great sounding music. It’s also a social activity that enables musicians and non-musicians to have fun making music together.
