Play a sound in android

How do I make an android app which just plays a sound on click of a button ? Suppose, a sound file a.mp3 is inside res\sound\ How should I play it ? Thanks in advance.


First of all you have to create a folder called raw then put there the music you want to play and then do something like this :

 public class TestSound extends Activity {
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {        

        Button btSound = (Button)this.findViewById(;
        final MediaPlayer mp = MediaPlayer.create(this, R.raw.musicTest);
        btSound .setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener(){

            public void onClick(View v) {

Hope it works :)
