Voiceover: Don't film in a location that has an echo or lots of noise. If the air conditioner turns on, if a helicopter is flying overhead, if the lawn mower is going, then you may need to move to a new location, or wait for those noises to pass before recording.
Music: Try finding appropriate audio from sources like Freeplaymusic.com Remember that you must follow Copyright rules The Fair Use section of my copywriter website explains what to do if you want to use popular music.
