I don't know how many responses you received, but here's my guess:  Most
LilyPond users are probably programmers or have programmer friends or
partners.  My wife and I are an example.  She is a gifted musician who
has recently learned how to use LilyPond for typesetting her choral
arrangements, piano works and also for producing jazz lead-sheets.  The
way we work is as follows:  I set up a template file for her to work
with, complete with macros for a number of tweaks and she enters the
music and lyrics. If she runs into a problem, she calls me and I
determine if it's a bug or something that needs a tweak she isn't
familiar with.  The process works quite well and we are both very
impressed with the quality of the typeset music.
