    UPDATE: As pointed out in the comments the "run in background" block no longer works the same as shown in this video so you may have to adapt your code.

    In this episode we will teach you have to program your microbit to play your favourite music (Star Wars for us) and give you and introduction to musical notes and reading music.

    To play music on your microbit you will need to buy a few cheap things;

    two crocodile clips http://amzn.to/2beTG2y
    A buzzer to make the sound http://amzn.to/2b5ANk7

    And of course a microbit if you don't already have one: http://amzn.to/2aJrWGF

    Sorry for the audio sync issues in the first part of this episode, something went wrong in recording.
