Need help making photos jump up and down to the beat of a song

Hi.

I have a bunch of photos — head shots.

I want to place them on the timeline on after the other, so for example, if I have 20 head shots, I'll essentially have 20 clips on my timeline.

Also on the timeline will be an audio track with a song.

I want to animate each of the head shots, so that they slightly bounce up and down in the frame to the rhythm of the song.

Ultimately I should end up with a sequence of heads jumping up and down to beat as the song plays.
Is there any quick way to do this?

I have close to zero experience using After Effects. I catch on quick and research manuals or tutorials when I run into something I don't understand. So far I've been able to achieve this by setting up markers to the beat and then placing key frames accordingly. It works, but I'm doing this individually and manually for each key frame and for every clip.

I have a feeling there's a way to do this so much faster that I'm just not aware of. Maybe some sort of expression to do this?

Any help here will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
