Ive been trying to turn off all my extra music for days now after someone else played with my phone & I couldn't get it back. Countless forums later and I finally worked it out. It wasn't any of the ways listed here, but it did point me in the right direction. In the latest update of the iPhone iOS 8.4.1 (Sept 2015), when you open your music app & have "My Music" selected on the bottom right there is a tab about a quarter of the way down the page with a heading like "songs" written in red with a down arrow. Click that arrow & a menu will come up from the bottom of the screen. Then uncheck the bottom box that says "show iTunes purchases".
