How to Add Your Own Music to Apple Music
As an Apple Music subscriber, you may be curious about how to add your own music to your library, especially if you have music files that aren’t available on the streaming service. Thankfully, Apple provides several ways to add your personal music collection to your Apple Music library.
Method 1: Import Music from iTunes
Adding music from iTunes to your Apple Music library is straightforward. Follow these simple steps:
1. Open iTunes on your Mac or PC.

3. Navigate to the folder that contains the music files you want to import and select them.
4. Click on “Open.” The songs will be added to your iTunes library.
5. Make sure you’ve signed in to Apple Music on your device, and you’ll see your imported songs under “Recently Added” in your iTunes library.
6. To make sure they are synced with your iPhone or other connected devices, go to Settings > Music on your iPhone, and enable “Sync Library.”
Method 2: Use iCloud Music Library
You can use iCloud Music Library to access your music library on any device. This method works best if you have a lot of music on your computer and want to access it on your iPhone without having to sync manually.
1. On your Mac or PC, open iTunes and go to “Preferences.”
2. Click on the “General” tab and enable “iCloud Music Library.”
3. Make sure you’re signed in to the same Apple ID on all the devices you want to access your music on.
4. On your iPhone, go to “Settings” > “Music” and enable “iCloud Music Library.”
5. Your songs should now be available on all your devices.
Method 3: Use Apple Music for Artists
If you’re an independent artist, you can use Apple Music for Artists to distribute your music to Apple Music. To get started, follow these steps:
1. Go to https://artists.apple.com and sign up for a free account.
2. Fill out your profile and upload your music.
3. Once your music is approved, it will be available for streaming on Apple Music.
