I have an Apple ID, do I also need an iTunes ID to purchase music?

There is no difference, Apple ID is the more general term and the one more commonly used nowadays.

As long as you have an Apple ID, you should be able to use the same ID for iTunes store and App Store – revolver Jan 17 '12 at 2:21
There is no difference. The same ID is used for iTunes, the App Store, iCloud, and a few other things. – tapwater May 9 '13 at 1:27
