Try sudo.  Put a line into sudoers that allows your users to only use the 
command mount -t smbfs //<machine_name>/<share> /home/<usr_name>/music

Or put the command into /etc/rc.conf.local.  Or whatever your 
distribution/OS's equivalent of that is

Both of course assume that you do have root privlege on the machine in
