    This thesis contains realization of a single approach to indexing and searching in symbolic music collections. On the basis of existing web applications the user interface was built that supports text and keyboard input with search by melody and rhythm. Indexing and searching are based on a melodic signature index and n-grams. Web pages were created for search input, presentation of results and a page that provides collection update. Java and Tomcat web server were chosen for the realization. Web pages contain HTML and JavaScript. Existing libraries were used for sound and graphic presentation of notes. The methods realized were for data capture, indexing, exact and approximate search, search input and display of results. The realization has been tested on an actual collection. Exact search was faster than approximate search for long search strings. Other input parameters, except for the one limiting search to the beginning of records didn’t have major influence on the time of search.
