We would like to download and listen to Apple Music songs offline
"I always want all music downloaded locally so I don't have to stream it."
Streaming is awesome: You can listen to anything you want—Beats 1 included—at any time, and it doesn't take up valuable space on your device. But it comes at a cellular cost, especially if you have a smaller data plan. And even if you have a massive cellular plan, there are places where streaming music just doesn't make sense: airplanes, for instance, or camping trips.
If you're not going to be connected to the internet, or if you're worried about your cellular data, you can choose to download songs, albums, and even entire playlists to your iPhone or iPad for offline listening.
Lucky for you, if you have an Apple Music subscription and iCloud Music Library enabled, you have the option to download any song, album, or playlist from its catalog for offline listening. Once downloaded you can listen to that song offline just like you can listen to any other song in your music library. This is a great way to save bandwidth of your data plan as you can save songs while you are on WiFi and create a playlist before leaving home.

Apple Music's tracks are DRM-locked
As soon as you go Apple Music online it will check if you still have a valid subscription. If you stay offline "forever" the song will be no longer playable.
Any song from the Apple Music catalog has DRM (digital rights management) applied to it, which is how the company makes sure you don't sign up for a streaming service, download a bunch of songs for offline listening, then cancel and run away with that music. So you can play any song from the Apple Music catalog on your devices, but if you cancel your Apple Music subscription, any songs from the subscription catalog, however, will become unplayable.
