Piezo analogue sound Answered

Hi all. I am a newbie and this is my first post so i might be barking up the wrong tree here. Would it be possible to use one of those small piezo-ceramic speakers to play sound e.g. from an mp3 player headphone jack? i am not looking for great quality sound, only voice quality, but i needs to be fairly loud. Many Thanks, Bob
