This study examined preservice teachers' perceptions about teaching elementary level mathematics lessons integrated with music. It also sought to determine how preservice teachers would strategize the integration of music activities when introducing elementary level mathematics lessons. The participants, 53 undergraduate preservice teachers at a large public university in a southern metropolitan area, were provided a series of six 40-minute interactive music-math integrated activities. Results of qualitative data analyses revealed that the majority of preservice teachers provided positive feedback about music-integrated pedagogy for teaching mathematics because it allowed them opportunities to escape from the limitations of traditional mathematics instruction.
