Hi Darren,

To be honest, I expected something a little more intense. That being said, we strongly suggest avoid adding music that plays automatically to your site.

Music that plays automatically is one of the quickest ways to get people to leave your site, either because they need it to be quiet because they are browsing the internet in an office, computer lab, library etc., or because it clashes with their own music that they are playing on their computer. Most people react by closing the browser tab or window the second the music starts to get rid of the unwanted intrusion as quickly as possible.

I am going to share a link to an excellent article that explains how to do this. The article also gives very sound advice on the implications of adding music to your website. Check it out here.
