After Effects is not the best program for audio. You can only listen to audio while previewing your work, or you can pres the period key “.” on the number pad and it will play just the audio. Never use mp3 with After Effects.
If you need to edit to the beat of the music, many editors will set markers to the beat as they listen in real time and then make their cuts/transitions on those marker points.
I should also add that if you are using the “render que,” you’ll need select the check box to export audio. It is not usually selected by default.
