I believe that you can find the definition of make-music in the file
scm/define-music-types.scm, line 778  The docstring tells what it does.

I found this file by using git grep.  By the name, I knew it couldn't be
C++ code, because C++ functions can't have a - character in them.  So I

$cd scm/
$git grep make-music

then searched through the output until I found one entry with "define" in
it.  I guess I could have made it easier by instead doing

$cd scm/
$git grep make-music | grep define

I'm telling you this because git grep is your friend; you will want to
learn to use this tool well when trying to work your way through the
LilyPond source code.
