    I like to keep my music on an external hard drive as like to have as much free space as possible on the macbook yet it seems to automatically transfer the files onto the computer.

    Is there a setting within itunes that stops this?

    Yes, go onto iTunes>preferences>Advanced and uncheck the box that says 'Copy files to iTunes media folder when adding to library' :)
