Music is arguably one of the best ways to convey an emotion, set a tone, and create a unique atmosphere. This holds especially true for videos and motion graphics. Without a doubt, music has long played a huge part in visual storytelling. By adding music to videos you can create impactful content that directly resonates with your audience. PicsArt offers a large library of stock music, the option to upload your own track, and handy editing tools that will assist you in achieving the perfect video. From our library, you can choose background music for videos that fit any theme. From up-beat tempos to subtle tunes, we guarantee you’ll find the perfect audio for your video.

Add Music to Videos for Social Media

Music has the power to enhance your videos and make them more marketable. Transform your social media posts by adding music to your videos. The perfect song will make the video more memorable for your audience, whether it’s on Instagram, Facebook, or your website. Overall, videos with a music track perform better on social media channels and are more engaging than those with no audio. For advertisements or promotional videos, you can use dramatic music that will help evoke emotions in your audience. For more descriptive videos, you can use subtle sounds that will complement the product/service you are showcasing. Our library of stock music and audio tracks offers a wide range of categories you can choose from. Browse through to find the perfect background music for your video.

Background Music for Videos

Music also fits perfectly in tutorial and explainer videos. Just because there’s speech in your video, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t add music to it as well. In fact, the right background music enhances the spoken voice and engages your listeners on a higher level. This online music video editor is perfect for those who make videos for Youtube, Vimeo, Instagram and even platforms for online courses like Udemy and Coursera.
