1. Insert a sound clip or music into the presentation   You have 2 options to do so in PowerPoint:   1) Insert sound to the slide   Sound icon in Media Clips group -> Sound from File...   2) Insert as transition sound   Animations -> Transition Sound (icon and textbox) -> Other Sound     2. Set the music to play through the presentation   1) click the sound's icon and go to Animations tab in menu, then click Custom Animation in Animations group. The Custom Animation pane will open and your sound file should be listed.   2) In the Custom Animation pane, click the arrow directly to the right of the sound icon to pull down the various options. Then select Effect Options.   3) Locate the Effects tab and Click the radio button beside Stop Playing after *** slides   Put a large number in the box so the track will play throughout all your slides, even if you go back and forth among slides. PPT considers each transition a "slide," so you should put a large number as you can in there.   4) Check the settings in the Timing tab. To play automatically, the timing should be set to Start After Previous with a 0-second delay. Click OK to close the dialog box.     3. Used a addin tool which has the feature of "Import Audio" and allows you to set background music for the whole presentation with just one click. You can get a free trail here
