How Can I Add Music To iMovie On A Mac?

Even if adding music on a Mac is quite simple, the process is not the same as using a smartphone.

  • Tap “Audio” in the top toolbar of the iMovie window.
  • On the left, choose the source you wish to use for your sound: Music, Sound Effects, or GarageBand. “Music” gives you compatible tracks from your iTunes library, while “GarageBand” will give you audio clips you’ve made in the GarageBand application.
  • Hover your cursor over each sound clip or song to reveal “Play” and tap it to listen to the clip.
  • Tap and drag your preferred sound to the editing bar at the bottom of the iMovie window, under any clip you have uploaded. (Make sure you place it where you wish the sound to start playing alongside the movie.)

From there, you can press the spacebar to play the clip and sound as they exist within the software. After that, simply decide if you wish to change anything. If the song you want is not visible when you tap “Music,” it might be stored somewhere that iMovie doesn’t look by default. Just add it from there.
