The BBC micro:bit can be programmed to
make a wide variety of sounds from single notes, tones and beats to your own
musical compositions. You can use your favorite online editor to write a
program to create whatever sounds or music you’d like your micro:bit to play.
Then, once you’ve downloaded and transferred your program to your micro:bit you can use crocodile clips attached to the pins to easily connect headphones
or a speaker and listen to your musical creation. You can also connect the buzzer
to create a simple metronome and take your music-making further by programming
and creating your very own keyboard using fruit or even a guitar using foil
and cardboard. So experiment with sound on your micro:bit and see what music you
can make. Choose one of the projects below to start learning about
programming sound and music with micro:bit.
