You can choose based on your language and your choice. A good internet connection might help you in downloading the music files pretty fast. You can also do it with a slow internet connection. But it might take very long time for downloading a single music file.
Free music download via cable is the first option to try. Most of the cell phones are purchased with a synching cable which can be connected to the personal computer. A software CD will also usually accompany. You have to install this software in the computer to make the computer recognize and transfer the data to the handset. There are also handsets, which do not require any installation of software. So, you can read the phoneís user manual and check if any software needs to be installed before starting the music download.
After installing the software (if required) and connecting your mobile phone to the computer with the cable, your phone might give you an indication that it has been connected to an external device and ask for your confirmation whether to allow the device to communicate with it.

Another popular option available other than synching cable is Bluetooth. Bluetooth is a wireless mode of transfer. No wires or cables are involved.

Switch on Bluetooth in both the devices. From your laptop, search for the Bluetooth devices. It will show all the Bluetooth devices in the range. Select your phone and connect to it. Your phone will ask for confirmation this time also. Once you allow your phone to communicate with the laptop, you can do unlimited music transfers. Select the music files in your laptop right click and send to your phone. After few minutes or so, you should be able to get all the music files in your phone.
