I'm the main account on my family share plan, how will the other members of the family set up their personal account of the service under the $15 family plan?

We will find out tomorrow. But according to Apple's website each family member who is given Apple Music rights will have their own service/music/playlists

Right, hence the advantage of the share plan, I'm sharing my spotify account right now with 3 people and my saved music and playlists is littered with music I have no interest in

I believe it will work a lot like the family accounts do now for all other purchases. Everybody's iTunes Library is their own, but they can download apps, movies, music and TV shows purchased by anybody else in the family group. The family accounts aren't the smoothest thing in the world, but I think I figured them out and have been able to give my parents easier access to some of the glut of stuff I buy.
