Excerpt of article text...

For this month's beginner column I would like to discuss the NotePlayer Control Class.

The NotePlayer description indicates that it plays musical notes via QuickTime. Since we can trust that all Macintosh computers come with QuickTime, we should be good to go. Sorry, Microsoft users, I don't do Windows.
