Hi Pierre,

I'm not aware of any method to do it with that easy syntax: <a-m1>

But you may want to try:

\version "2.15.36"

letter =
#(define-music-function (parser location l fingering)(string? ly:music?)
(let* ((music (make-music 'FingeringEvent))
      (finger (ly:music-property fingering 'digit))
      (n (number->string finger)))
        \tweak #'text #(markup #:concat (;#:fontsize 6
                                 #:normal-text l n))-$music

\relative c' {
        <a-\letter x -1
         cis-\letter y -2
         e-\letter z -3>
