Leading research has proven that when children actively engage in music, it is equivalent to a full brain workout."
Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) October 14, 2014
Beamz Interactive, Inc. (OTCQB: BZIC), a leading developer of state-of-the-art interactive music products, today announced a new early learning collection featuring 15 of The Learning Station’s interactive music videos (IMVs) that can be played on the Beamz iOS & Android apps, or with the Beamz Laser Controller which connects to a PC, Mac, iPad or iPhone.
“Leading research has proven that when children actively engage in music, it is equivalent to a full brain workout,” said Don Monopoli, co-founder of The Learning Station. ”With Beamz Interactive Music Videos children choose the instruments, sound effects and specific activity responses to make their own unique audio track to accompany the videos. Those unique mixes can be recorded, shared and played over and over again. Or, a child can start from scratch every time, playing along and making their music videos different with every play."
Beamz Learning Station interactive music videos cover the alphabet, animal sounds, days of the week, months of the year, shapes, numbers, as well as popular nursery rhymes and kids’ songs such as Five Little Monkeys and Bingo. In addition, The Learning Station is preparing a series of lesson plans to accompany this content for various pre-school and kindergarten programs.
“The Learning Station has received dozens of awards for its ability to positively impact children through inspirational learning songs and videos currently featured in classroom settings around the globe,” said Charlie Mollo, Beamz Interactive CEO. “We are very excited to join forces with The Learning Station; we share the mutual belief that continued exposure and interactivity with music greatly impacts a child’s future cognition, literacy and math skills. As we continue to focus our business strategy on the education and health markets, this announcement meets our objective to expand our content to impact classrooms, special needs programs and therapy settings such as children’s hospitals.”
Targeted at schools and families with Pre-K to early elementary-aged children, the new Beamz Learning Station Bundle features 15 of The Learning Station’s blockbuster music videos enhanced with Beamz interactive music technology. A sample medley of Beamz Learning Station IMVs is provided with free Beamz iOS and Android apps. Individual music video titles are available for $2.99 each in all of the application stores and the complete bundle may be purchased on the Beamz Music site or Apple and Android application stores for $24.99.
“As advocates for using music to learn and have fun, it was a natural progression for us to expand our award-winning music videos with an interactive platform where kids and families can bond and truly interact with our content,” added Don Monopoli. “We are honored to join efforts with Beamz Interactive technology to advance this interactive music video experience by inviting children to become co-composers of our music videos.”
There are many positive educational rewards from this interactive music program. As children actively engage themselves in music, they improve brain development and increase primary areas of intellectual growth – boosting vocabulary, language, critical thinking, memory, literacy awareness, math comprehension and much more. This inviting and fun interactive program also inspires inventiveness as it encourages a child's imagination and creative free expression.
