"Beamz is the type of product that people fall in love with the second they see it in action. Beamz user scenarios and the settings in which it can be used are limitless. Our partnership with AzTAP has shown that using music as a catalyst for teaching early learning concepts, as well as neuro, occupational and physical therapies, is highly successful. Schools participating in the AzTAP library have quickly realized Beamz' value to serve children of all ages with special needs, and because Beamz is universally designed, anyone can actively participate."
