The LilyPad Buzzer lets you create different noises using code when attached to a LilyPad Arduino. Send the buzzer a series of tones, and you can make musical melodies, special effect sounds, alarms, and more. This buzzer isn't very loud, but will be audible in close range to your projects. In this tutorial, we'll demonstrate how to hook up to a LilyPad Arduino and how to use the tone() function in Arduino to make sounds.

The LilyPad Buzzer is different than a speaker that plays audio, if you are looking to make a project that loads and plays music, we recommend the LilyPad MP3.
