As told in many other similar posts, there are a lot of solutions around the web, independently from the programming editor you're using.
Online mediaplayers are generally free for no-commercial sites; personally, i like very much JW Player (http://www.longtailvideo.com/)
It has cool plugins and it's ready for HTML5. You'll find a good online wizard to generate the code too.

HI all I want music to play when a user naviagates to our website. I am using Dreamweaver CS5, still learning how to use the application. Can anyone help please?
DON'T DO IT.... People hate that, going onto a website and suddenly RRARRRRRRRR!! BANG BANG!. Instead place in a non-start mp3 player on your site. There is even copy&paste scripts out there. This also gives people the option to press play and even flick between tracks.
Flash (H263) or Divx (H264) are not comaptible to HTML-5-Video at this time.
Flashplayer yu can easy creater with Adobe CS 5 (predefined GUI possible).
DivX-player for non commercial context you find at DivX.com. Also mp4
in this content free.
HTML-5-Video dont need any programm: Inside of Browser a GUI is
implemented (f.f. see opera.com).
If you want, goto my website twseiten.com (www.twseiten.com) for
a flash player for non commercial content.
There are a lot of players you can plug-in your site. You just have to do a simple search and tons of results will go your way.
I have one piece of advice though. Make the playing of music controlled by the user. Do not play it automatically as it will affect the time your web page will load. Just put it on a side where it will be noticed so that the user can play it.
There is nothing more annoying that having a background music play automatically for you.
