When you install lilypond you already will have the files you need to
highlight lilypond files. You may need to search for them, however.
Hmm... I found them in the systems /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/ 
after installing the lilypond package in hardy ubuntu.
Tell emacs where to find them.

perhaps (require 'lilypond-init) might be enough.
Though its worth installing lyqi-mode.

This is what my .emacs file looks like for lilypond
(autoload 'LilyPond-mode "lilypond-mode" "LilyPond Editing Mode" t)
(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.ly$" . LilyPond-mode))

;; adds ~/.elisp/lyqi in the load path
(setq load-path (cons (expand-file-name "~/.elisp/lyqi") load-path))

;; when loading LilyPond-mode, lyqi-mode library will also be loaded.
;; type `C-c q' in LilyPond-mode to switch to lyqi-mode.
(eval-after-load "LilyPond-mode"
     (load-library "lyqi-mode")
     (define-key LilyPond-mode-map "\C-cq" 'lyqi-mode)
          (lambda () (turn-on-font-lock))))
