[Haskell-beginners] manipulating Map for music application

I have a Haskell program that computes music compositions. A composition
consists of sounds that happen at locations. A location is data type Loc.
At each location is a list of chords. A chord is data type Chord. Each
chord contains some chord-specific data and a list of notes. A note is data
So we have
data Note = Note ...
data Chord = Chord ChordSpecificData [Note]
type Composition = Map Loc [Chord]
I would like to write a few different functions that operate over all the
The following function breaks out all the notes, tupling them with the
associated Locs and Chords:
compositionToList :: Composition -> [(Loc,Chord,Note)]
The following function transforms Notes, keeping only the Just results. If
a Chord gets all its notes eliminated, that Chord is removed. If a Loc has
all its Chords removed, that Loc is removed from the Map.
mapNotesMaybe :: (Loc -> Chord -> Note -> Maybe Note) -> Composition
Any advice for concise code appreciated.
What's a concise way of doing this?
Another useful function would be used for mapping
