How do I copy music from PC to iPhone

I have a fiend who wants to copy music files from a PC to an iPhone? I downloaded a free program called AnyTrans but it didn't work.
     Also, the music on his PC is neatly categorized into folders, which are further categorized into sub-folders, etc. Even if AnyTrans had worked, we would have had to select the music from each individual folder (very tedious) and then dump them all into one big folder on the iPhone (when we tested AnyTrans we only copied about a dozen music files from one of the folders).
     This may be asking for too much, but is it possible to not only copy the music but to do it with them all still in their respective folders?

I suggest using iTunes for that. iTunes has Music Folders and mates with the iPhone.

From my experience, it is not a good idea to use the music folder feature of iTunes as it will be messy and you will find it complicated when you want to delete selected songs from your iPhone but you cannot do so due to sync errors. If there is sync error, you need to remove the whole music library, do a sync to remove all songs from your iPhone and add back your music library and do another sync to copy all songs to your iPhone.

Using third party music app will be a better choice.

Personally, I upload my songs to the cloud of Google Play Music and install the Google Play Music app and download the songs for offline listening.

We use iTunes here and it works fine.  However, try the third party app as well to see if that works for you
