A music website is basically a webpage where one can play/pause music. It has other options like the home section, music section, about section, contact section, etc. In this project, we are going to make a website that will play/pause music using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. We will use HTML to give a basic layout and with CSS, we will give beautify our design by giving aground and play pause button images. We will use basic JavaScript features like if-else and document.getElementById to play and pause our music.


  • We will create the basic layout i.e. two divs (left and right) inside one div tag. In the left div, we will write some text and in the right div, we will place a play or pause image. We will also create a basic nav-bar and float to the right.
  • With the help of CSS, we will beautify our overall structure by giving background images, padding, margin, etc.
  • We will use basic JavaScript functions like onclick(), play() , pause(), and getElementById() to get the current status of music and make changes accordingly.
  • When the user will play the music we will show a play image or icon and when the user presses pause image or icon will be displayed. This is done using a simple if-else statement.

Example: In this example, we are using the above-explained approach.


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
        /* Styling the body */
        * {
            padding: 0;
            margin: 0;
        /* Styling the background image by
        giving its url and position */
        .container {
            height: 100vh;
            width: 100%;
            background-image: url(
