Tonal music contains repeating or varying patterns that occur at various scales, exist at multiple locations, and embody diverse properties of musical notes. We define a language for representing music that expresses such patterns as musical transformations applied to multiple locations in a score. To concisely represent collections of patterns with shared structure, we organize them into prefix trees. We demonstrate the effectiveness of this approach by using it to recreate a large portion of a piece of tonal music.
