How do I build a persistent music player using web standards?

I want to build a persistent music player for my music website that I am building. The site will features many different pieces of music in posts and playlists, but the player itself will be fixed to either side or the bottom of the site and wherever the user navigates to on the site the player will not stop playing, which would lessen the UX, which is my top priority.

I wanted to ask the treehouse community as I'm not sure how to go about starting the project. I assume that I'm going to use HTML to create the elements, CSS to styles it and JavaScript and AJAX to add the functionality.

But are there any libraries out there that have the basic components that I would need pre-built, and / or any tutorials that anybody knows of for this kind of thing?

Any advice or help that the community can give me will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

P.S. - I want to to operate similar to Spotify or Rdio, or most streaming Service web apps, if that helps out at all.
