Almost desperate on rsync from macbook to NAS

I'm almost getting exhausted, thus I have to bother you people to get some help.
I simply want to sync my "iTunes Music" folder from my MacBook over to my NAS.
The scenario is like this:
source path: "/Users/bonny/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music/" (in here there
are all the subfolders I want to sync over to the NAS);
destination: "rsync://firstname.lastname@example.org/musica/iTunes Music/"
What I did is to copy the stuff over "by hand" (tens of GB!!!)... now
I sometimes add new music to my iTunes Library, therefore I don't want
to sync all stuff, just add to the NAS what's been added on my MacBook
and delete on the NAS what has gone from my MacBook.
I tried many many ways, but without any success!!
I tried to play around with trailing slashes, but I got tired while
not succeeding :-/
My best guess is following:
rsync -ahzv --delete --progress --numeric-ids --ignore-errors
I'd leave *both* paths *without* trailing slash... is this OK?
Please anymbody help me in getting things working, I don't want to do
everything again from the beginning (rsyncing from zero)...
