Welcome to the iPadForum! This Forum offers so much information related to the iPad and its use. The IPF has many discussion topics related to: Acessories, Help, Apple News, Hacking, Gaming, Business/Education, Special Needs and Health.
The iPadForum also includes a Regional Ipad Group for international users across the world. This is a wonderful area to "find" members from your own country.

If you have not done so, please take a look at the iOS 5.0 and 5.1:
Connecting to the iTunes Store.
iTunes - Books - iPad User Guide for iOS 5.1 by Apple Inc.
Finally, please read the rules!
The best way is to input the music into iTunes on your computer and then sync the iPad with iTunes. This way, you can create playlists and such and easily manage it using the Music app.
You don't even need to connect the phone. Once you sign into iTunes on the computer you can go to the Purchased section and download your music directly. Of course, depending on your internet speed the phone transfer may be faster.
Always be cautions about what choices you make when connecting an iOS device to a computer and iTunes the first time. You 'Do Not' want to choose to reformat the iOS device as new. Just say no.
If iTunes does not ask you if you want to transfer purchases after connecting the iPhone you should be able to find the option under the Files menu. Might be in a submenu. I don't remember off the top of my head.
Note: This is in response to the previous post about transferring music already on an iPhone to the computer. Not the original question about transferring music from the computer to the iPad or other iOS device.
