How to Selectively Backup iPhone Music without iTunes

The 18 year-old iTunes could be an Apple revolutionary tool back then to integrate a media player "Tuner" with iOS file management and purchase utilities as a whole. But for the year 2019, testified emblematic of a bloated junk - slow, bug-loaded with abrupt syncing logic to deliver the pipe dream of best one-stop media service, iTunes is deeply burried in univeral hatred. And this is especially true for iPhone music backup and export.

iTunes only offers two exact iPhone music file transfer utilities - iTunes library to iPhone one-way syncing and iPhone to iTunes full backup. Your wish for a selective iPhone music backup/export to computer for the purpose of local music collection is made unreachable by iTunes, as you know you will end up compromised to a full iPhone backup with everything related and unrelated packed up in an unreadable file folder in a mixture. And there's no way to track down a specific music file storing location in the full iPhone backup folder.
