The introduction of projects involving music and mathematics in Secondary Education should allow the integration of these disciplines by non-specialists. In the present work we describe an experience carried out with future mathematics teachers with solid scientific-technical training, but little musical training. This pilot contributes with concrete orientations and results para the creation and development of STEAM activities, which can be found in [5].
