That lesson includes this note:

    Important: The iPhone simulator appears to have somewhat
    buggy support for sound playback via AVAudioPlayer – it
    will intermittently fail for no reason. Therefore, if
    you are using the play command be sure to test your
    application on a real device.

How does it work when you test on your phone?
