How to Delete a Song from the iPad or Remove All the Music from the iPad

A reader recently sent me this question about deleting music from her iPad. I sent back a reply that tells how to remove a single song and how to delete all the music on the iPad.

Hi. I want to remove music off my iPad but I want to leave it on my
computer and on my husband’s iPad . Apple showed me how to do this but
I forgot how it was done. Thanks Kathy

To delete a song just swipe across it and tap delete.

To delete all music on your iPad
Tap Settings and then tap General
Select Usage and wait for Music to show up under Storage
Tap the Edit button
Tap the Minus symbol next to All Music, then tap Delete to remove all songs from the device
