I have two hard drives. One is a 256GB SSD and the other is a 1TB HDD. I installed Ubuntu to the SSD and that is where my /home directory resides. I would like to use the HDD for media storage. How can I point /home/user/music (and ~/movies, ~/pictures, etc.) to the larger HHD but keep my /home directory on the smaller, faster SSD?

I think this is not the best solution however it could be useful. You could create subfolder 'Media' for example and mount your 1TB HDD partition to ~/Media. So you'll get internal media storage in ~/Media that physically placed on your 1TB HDD. Couple good guides: one, two, three.
