I think http://www.thesitewizard.com/webdesign/backgroundmusic.shtml should have the details you need.  Personally, I live in the boondocks & use dialup.  I won't wait for sound to load before I move on.

If you have the sheet music, I would recommend transposing it to midi format.  It keeps the files small.  There are also copyright free midi files available.  Change the url in the link below
