You will need to enable iCloud Music library. This will give you access to music in your library, which will sync across on all your devices using the same Apple ID. Follow the screenshots below.

 

First go into Settings on your iPhone, scroll down till you see Music:

You will also need to switch on iCloud Music Library in iTunes on your PC. This is done by the following:

 

Load up iTunes.

 

From the menu bar at the top of the iTunes window, choose Edit > Preferences.

Once you have ticked the iCloud Music Library box, click OK.

 

After a short time, the library will sync up across all your devices. So for example, if you add an album, song, on your iPhone from Apple Music, you will then see that very same album, song appear in iTunes on your PC and also the same if you were to do it the opposite way around (adding a album, song in iTunes on your PC).

 

Hope this helps 🙂
