Learning to Play The Beamz!

Rachelle Sorensen, Tasha Lewis, Peta Clark, Terri Hales

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.

Sibling love

Whenever these cute siblings are around each other they can sense it. It is very warming to see them react like this to each other.

We were so happy to welcome some special guests from BYU. Hansel, Gretel and the Witch came to pay us a visit and sing us some of the songs from the opera Hansel and Gretel written by Engelbert Humperdinck. They will be performing the opera at BYU June 10th-13th. (click here for more information)

Thank you for coming to sing for us! We loved it! 

Swimming at Springville


We had so much fun on our field trips to Springville pool. It was so fun to watch the students that love the water so much. They would have stayed in the pool all day if we had let them!
