Music in a story can change the mood and affect the emotions that your audience has.

Sounds that are: playful, dramatic, and suspenseful, can show how characters feel, or hint at something that’s coming in the story.

To add music to your project, click the sounds tab and choose a sound.

Explore the Scratch Music library.

The loops category contains short pieces of music to play in your story.

Use the “play sound until done” block to play the sound from beginning to end.

Create a sequence in your story that starts the music when the flag is clicked.

To play the sound over and over again, add a loop from the control menu.

Loops repeat the actions inside of it.


Maybe your project still needs a little something.

Go ahead and explore adding your own designs, sounds, and customizations.
