    1. Connect your iPad to your computer.
    2. Launch iTunes.
    3. Click on your iPad name on the left side under Devices
    4. Click on the Music Tab in the iTunes window on the right side.

    I too am very frusterated with Apples "new" design of it's music player.  We are all waiting for the next update.  Apple please hurry.  I used to be able to download AAC audio books that would show different pictures from the actual book as it was being read.  Now no pictures come up.  Anyone else find that?  Is there a solution.  Apple please bring back the old music player or at least give us the option to choose which one we want to use. 

     

    No 30sec rewind either.....  What's up with that??

    Who is "we"?

     

    I'm waiting for no such thing.

    I most certainly agree, Spacific!  I just bought the iPad2 in order to have the larger interface, and install some drawing programs.  But I'm stuck with trying, unsuccessfully, to delete unwanted music!!  (I have an iPod which works fine for my music, and my collection would max out this 64 Gig iPad, leaving me no room for anything else.)  I tried Demo's suggestion, but I do not get the same results. Very frustrating indeed. And yes, I was hoping to download books, but at this rate, I cannot see that working either.

    Music can be deleted in Setting/General/Usage/Music, then swipe sideways on All Music, it's an all or nothing option. You can also delete one track at a time through the Music App on the Song list by swiping side ways on the song title.

    Hello. I own an iPad 2 & an iPhone 4. I plan on purchasing an iPhone 5S soon. I have most of my music on both devices. (Music is automatically downloaded to both devices--they do this for anything that can be downloaded to both. I'm not sure how to stop the downloads to my iPad when I download a new song, movie, or app.) I too would like to delete my music from my iPad as I am almost out of room on it. I use my iPhone for listening to music all the time now. My problem is that my computer died and I have no way to sync with iTunes now. Does anyone know of a more direct or alternate way to delete music from an iPad 2?

    You can also selectively delete music from with in the Music app by swiping sideways in the Song view or tap and hold in the Artist and Album view to reveal a black "X" button. To prevent store purchases from auto downloading on the iPad go to Settings/iTunes & App Store and turn off the items you do not want to auto download.

    Good grief. Two hours of Google search bad advice and I finally found someone who knows what they're talking about. Thank you!

    I give up. I am so ******. Just got a new iPad The f'ing music is all screwed up even after I trashed some I did not want. Emptied my trash, deleted all music on iPad showed 0 then went back to iTunes to download only checked songs and got the **** entire library again. I checked only the song checked. All the right buttons. I have been downloading music on my iPod for 6 years and iPhone  and same thing happened to my iPhone as soon as Ios7 happened. The worst OS EVER!!!!!!!!!!!! I am ready to send this **** iPad back. Getting sick of Apple.

    Are their little cloud icons next to the songs you did not want?   Those are songs in the cloud, not on the device.

    If you turn off " show all music" in settings, then sync checked songs again you will not see music in the cloud.

    I did all that 3 times and it is still all there. I gave up on my iphone.  I will check some more tomorrow.Steve Jobs is rolling in his Urn. I hate Itunes now and IOS7.  Tomorrow is another day and I hate to have a machine get the best of me.
