"I'm looking forward to discussing the impact that interactive music can have in the classroom at this year's TCEA Convention in Austin," said Mary Jo Barry, Beamz Senior Marketing Manager. "This five-day convention brings together educators from across the state of Texas to inspire innovative teaching and learning. It's a great place to showcase how interactive music can help kids of all ages get the sensory input they need. Through Beamz we are able to deliver an exciting approach to learning, all while building self-esteem and independence."
Beamz has become an important device for people of all abilities because music is such an excellent vehicle to teach learning concepts and achieve developmental milestones.

Adaptive peripherals such as switches and keyboards, as well as interactive whiteboards and touch screen devices can be used to provide just the right amount of support for every learner or therapy recipient.
"Beamz has been successfully used in schools, therapy facilities, in homes and in hospitals across the nation," said Charlie Mollo, CEO of Beamz Interactive. "At TCEA we have a tremendous opportunity to present to hundreds of teachers and educators about the benefits of interactive music. With a growing music library, dozens of peripherals and near limitless ways the device can be used in a classroom, Beamz is a wonderful way to engage children in the world of music and help them explore their creativity through interactive learning."
In addition to the Beamz Education and Healthcare interactive music system, Beamz will be showcasing its Beamz Family Play Guide, developed in conjunction with the National Lekotek Center. The Beamz Family Play Guide is a tool designed to educate families on ways to address the development of cognitive, sensory, communication and emotional skills with the Beamz interactive music system.
