Moving my music library

Ok so i have about 10GB of music in my library. I have 8GB of it on a flash drive. But the rest is stuck on y computer. So is there a way to port it over to my new mac? And i have a shuffle so i want to keep my playlists together. Is there a way?

Just drag the files over to where you want to move it, the entire iTunes folder.

Then launch iTunes while holding down the option key, and click choose library. Navigate to the new folder, and select the iTunes library folder.
