How to Delete Music from iPad

Hi. When I originally synced my iTunes and iPad, all the music came over with the apps. The music is now taking up too much space. I have updated my sync settings within iTunes to indicate that it should only sync the apps (not the music). However, all of the music is already on my iPad. Is there any way that I can remove music from iPad without losing all my songs from iTunes (that is my fear)?

Enjoy playing music on your iPad, like iPad 2? Sounds great. However, multiple songs on iPad take up too much storage space. When little storage space is left, you may need to do some music removal to make room for new files. Like the user above, if you sync your iPad with iTunes, you will lose all songs added previously on your iPad . If you're worried, I recommend you a useful tool - Wondershare TunesGo Retro (Windows) or Wonershare TunesGo Retro (Mac). It enables you to delete multiple iPad songs and playlists at once. In addition, the songs in iTunes will still be there after the removal.
