Adding background music

Now let's look at how to add background music to our iMovie project. Now previously, I added this Greasy Wheels music to my project, but the method I used was to drag it into my project and attach it to one of my clips, and again this means that if I drag the clip anywhere, all the audio moves with it. Let's undo that. But what I want is some music that plays from the beginning of my project and won't be moved if I shuffle my clips around. So first of all, I am going to select that Greasy Wheels Long music and delete that. That way it won't conflict with the music I am going to bring in. So to add background music to your iMovie project, you can either drag it in from a Finder window on your Mac or browse through the Music and Sound Effect browser, which gives you access to your iTunes library, any Garage Band songs you have composed, as well as to the iMovie and iLife Sound Effects folders, which again contain hundreds of sound effects and musical pieces.
