Opened the terminal ran alsamixer, held the right arrow key till I could encounter beep mixer, but was unable to find beep GUI.

Does this mean beep is not installed or it has not been invoked or any other scenario?

Thank You in advance.

When you open alsamixer you may first press F6 and select your card. Now you should able to mute the beep with M. Pressing Esc closes alsamixer.

As far as I know, alsamixer simply does not support changing beep's volume.
