As I already said, Instagram itself offers a Reels template. You only need to add your own videos and photos to the template and then share the Reels. The template will include the music for the template. You will not have to spend time finding the right music for the Reel. This feature was added a few months back, but not all Instagram users know about it.

Open the Instagram app and then Tap the Reels icon at the bottom-center part of the screen. Now click the Camera icon located in the top right corner. Tap the ‘Templates’ icon at the bottom of the screen. It will open a list of Instagram templates you can choose from.
