a. How would you change the code to make the song play twice as fast?

You could change the values below of "noteDurations" - double every value to make the song play twice as fast. You can also mess with the rhythm and invert it (replace quarter notes with eighth notes and eighth notes with quarter notes) to get a fun syncopation.


int noteDurations[] = {

  4, 8, 8, 4,4,4,4,4 };


change to:

int noteDurations[] = {

  8, 16, 16, 8,8,8,8,8 };
