What is The Beamz?

The Beamz is a laster-based music device. Each laser beam corresponds to an instrument or sound that the user plays by interrupting the beam. When the player removes his or her hand the sound stops.

Here at Oakridge School we LOVE music! In this short video watch Tasha Lewis and Peta Clark show one of our students how to play The Beamz. This amazing took is a great way for Oakridge students to interact and create music.
