Is there an easy way to offload music, but keep it in the Music library?

So here is my dilemma- my friends iPhone is running low on memory and I noticed she has almost 7 gigs of music downloaded- is there an easy way to offload everything but keep it in the library? I know you can do it one by one but that seems tedious- I was poking around in settings but I don't see an easy way- I put on optimized storage and set it to none but that didn't change anything-
Thanks in advance-

Re: Offload music

On your friends iPhone, go to Settings > Music > Downloads and then swipe the All Songs section all the way to the left. This will erase all downloaded songs from the iPhone but keep the songs in the library.

She won’t lose the songs. She will have to stream it or download it.
