According to my experience, this just needs people talking and
explaining. I taught LilyPond to users who have never programmed and do
not use their keyboard much (used to GUI applications). They would never
read the docs in order to understand it. But after explaining LilyPond
for 30 min, they can use it and are actually excited that it works.

That's why, IMO, a well crafted series of screencasts would attract many new users.
It's in my long TODO list

I agree. However, some more elaborate tweaks and adjustments will need more work, but there's already a lot of valuable matter elsewhere on the Net. Not always easily reachable from within one spot (say the LilyPond website). So one additional action is to hunt for relevant content external to LilyPond and make it more easily accessible.

By the way, whenever I'm on the move and have a tune in mind, I write it in LilyPond format. Convenient, no need for extra tools and easily importable into LilyPond.
