    ...does not enjoy music too/either.

    Jennifer does not enjoy classical music. Her father does not enjoy classical music too.

    I think the word in bold should be 'either'.

    Could some member/s confirm whether/if I am correct?

    Also, which word is better: if or whether?

    Thanks in advance.

    Absolutely. A positive statement takes "too", a negative statement takes "either".

    Could someone confirm if I am correct?

    OR

    Could someone confirm whether or not I am correct?

    However (!), if you ask someone to confirm something, you are asking them to agree with you. So it would be better stated as:

    Could someone confirm that I am correct? (ie I think I'm correct but I want to check!)

    Re: ...does not enjoy music too/either.

    **Neither a teacher nor a native speaker.**

    Tom likes this song and I like it too.
    Tom does not like this song and I don't like it either.

    Use either for negative sentences.

    Could some members confirm if I am correct? (if is good in my opinion )
    Yes, you're correct.

    Cheers!

    Re: ...does not enjoy music too/either.

    ... confirm if I am correct.
    ... confirm whether I am correct.
    ... confirm whether or not I am correct. -- 'or not' is superfluous here but there are examples when it is needed
