Arduino Keyboard code

C/C++
That's the code that will make your keyboard play
#include "pitches.h" //Notes are stored into this library

int C = 7; //First button on pin 7
int D = 8; //Second button on pin 8
int E = 9; //Third button on pin 9

int G = 11; //Fifth button on pin 11
int A = 12; //Sixth button on pin 12
int B = 13; //Seventh button on pin 13

int c[] = {N_C5}; //Plays C Note
int d[] = {N_D5}; //Plays D Note

int g[] = {N_G5}; //Plays G Note
int a[] = {N_A5}; //Plays A Note
int b[] = {N_B5}; //Plays B Note

int duration(500); //Every note lasts 500 milliseconds. You can change it as you like

    for (int Note = 0; Note < 1; Note++) {
