    Hello, I have powerpoint but not for mac.  You could try the following, maybe the steps are similar in Mac:

    -- open powerpoint
    -- click on insert tab
    -- click on down arrow next to sound icon
    -- click on sound from file
    -- navigate to where mp3 is saved
    -- click on open
    -- a box will pop up asking "How do you want sound to start in the slide show?
    -- it will give you two choices: automatically or When Clicked
    -- select the option you want
    -- finish adding your slides and music and then
    -- save presentation
