If you want the code for playing a music file with the default media player on someones computer then this is what you need:
The below code should start what ever program is associated with that file extention of the file passed to it.

' Paste the code below into the form of a Standard Exe project and replace the value assigned to the sMusicFile variable with your file>

Private Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long
Const SW_SHOWNORMAL = 1
Dim sMusicFile as String

Private Sub Form_Load()
    sMusicFile = "D:\StreamRipper\Archive\Tracks\Drum and Bass\2 Cities\2 Cities - Concrete Vein.mp3"
    ShellExecute Me.hwnd, "open", sMusicFile, vbNullString, "C:\", SW_SHOWNORMAL
    Unload Me
End Sub
