The MKR Zero board is a great board for getting started with various music projects. Using the popular Arm® Cortex®-M0 32-bit SAMD21 processor, it also comes with a micro SD card holder with dedicated SPI interfaces. The board is part of the MKR family, where you can choose from a large variety of shields to build projects out of the box with minimal effort!
Feature
Cortex-M0 32-bit SAMD21

The powerful, low-power processor that is used in all MKR Family boards.

Feature
Micro SD card holder

Store large media files, build advanced UIs for displays or log data offline: extra space is always useful.

Suggested Libraries

ArduinoSound
This library provides simple way to play and analyze audio data using Arduino on SAMD21 based boards using the I2S bus.
ArduinoLowPower
The ArduinoLowPower library allows you to use the low power features of the SAMD21 MCU to minimize power consumption and maximize battery duration.
RTCZero
An RTC (Real Time Clock) library that can be used to build clocks, alarms and stopwatches.

Arduino Basics

Built-in Examples
Built-in Examples are sketches included in the Arduino IDE and demonstrate all basic Arduino commands.
Foundations
In Foundations you can find some specific knowledge about the principles and techniques that are behind the Arduino.
Language References
Arduino programming language can be divided in three main parts: functions, values (variables and constants), and structure.
