If you want to move something vertically, it's almost always better to
use the padding property instead of extra-offset. The reason is that
if you set padding, then LilyPond will realize that you have moved
something and migh for example add some extra spacing between the
staves to avoid that your moved text collides with the stave above.
If you use extra-offset, then LilyPond will not adjust the layout
of anything else. See the section "9.2.1 Common tweaks" for examples
of how to set the padding property.

The markup command is the correct way to do it, but instead of \lower, use the "extra-offset" property. For example,

    \once \override TextScript #'extra-offset = #'(0 . -10)

will create a quarter note C, place the word "markup" above the staff, and the extra-offset will shift it 0 staff spaces horizontally and 10 staff spaces down.
