I have a full score and am creating parts. In the parts, I would like to have markup "verse 1", etc. Is there any way to do that without modifying music variables?

Yes, but to get there you'd have to be more explicit about what you actually want.

I have \versetwomusic ^"Verse 2"  but lilypond says, "Unexpected token, ^".

This tries to attach a markup to a (complete) music expression, which is not possible. A markup can either be attached to a musical element (a note/rest) or defined as a top-level item between scores.

If you only want to state "Verse 2" as a sort of heading for that part you could do

\markup "Verse 2"


with arbitrarily complex arrangements.

Anything else will also be possible, but only when knowing what you're really after.


So I'll need to put my markup *inside* \versetwomusic ? That means it will be in the score and in the parts which is undesirable.

What is the best way to deal with this situation? I guess what would be great is if I could put markup in the part like ^\markup{ \for"part"  "Verse 1 }  and somehow only show that markup in the part.
