I'm trying to get going with org-babel and lilypond music markup. I have
the system basically functioning, but there's an elementary issue I
can't seem to wrap my brain around.

The reason I'm excited to use org with lilypond files is the foldable
headers *, **, *** etc, as well as drawers and tables. However, that's
available only in an "org-mode" buffer, and I'm also wanting to use
lilypond-mode, which gives excellent colored markup and indentation. How
do I get the advantages of both? Or is that not even what I should be
after? I may be fundamentally missing what's potentially useful about
all of this for my musical use case!

Thank you,
Steven Arntson

I haven't used babel for lilypond, but the usual way to edit a source
code block in the emacs mode for the language is to press C-c ' in the
source code block.

This is embarrassing ... I'd tried that and hadn't managed to get it to
work, and now I realize I was using C-c ` and not C-c '. The devil is in
the details.

I'm still a little mystified about using org markup in the context of
the lilypond file, but maybe now I can do a little more experimenting.

Thank you!
Steven

Have you seen this?

http://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/babel/languages/ob-doc-lilypond.html

There are some example org-mode files there that might help you on your
way.
