Interaction design patterns provide best-practice solutions to software user interface design problems. Several interaction design pattern collections have been published, but none of them address the details of interaction for software that facilitates musical composition on a personal computer. This paper presents a new interaction design pattern collection for musical applications and explains the pattern creation process, organizational structure, and validation model for the collection. Additionally, this paper surveys general design pattern concepts and user-centered software design practices and illustrates how these two subjects have been merged within the interaction design discipline.
