Question: Apple Music slowing down iTunes

I recently started using apple music and I noticed every time a song ends and it switches to a different song iTunes completely freezes. I can't do anything for a good 20 to 30 seconds while its trying to switch songs. Is there a fix for this or should I just ditch apple music?

Hello lindseyhpag,

Thanks for that info and choosing the Apple Support Communities. If I understand correctly, you are unable to listen to songs as expected in iTunes on your computer, as it freezes up when a song finishes. To help with this issue, please follow the steps in this Apple resource on your situation, like starting iTunes in Safe Mode and testing in a new user account on your computer.
