LilyPond je nástroj na sadzanie hudby. Tvorí nádherný notový zápis zo vstupného súboru s vysokoúrovňovým popisom.

LilyPond podporuje mnohé druhy konštrukcií zápisu hudby, vrátane názvov strún, bubnového zápisu, vzorovaného basu, okresných nôt, gitarových tabulatúr, moderného zápisu (shlukový zápis a rytmické zoskupovanie), (vnorené) n-tice s ľubovoľnými pomermi a ďalšie.

Podporu vstupného jazyka LilyPond je možné hladko integrovať do LaTeXu, HTML a Texinfo a umožniť tak písanie jednohárkovej hudby alebo muzikologických pojednaní z jediného zdroja. Forma a obsah sú oddelené a s expertným automatickým sadzaním LilyPond používatelia nemusia byť experti na typografiu, aby mohli tvoriť dobré noty.

LilyPond tvorí tlačený výstup vo formátoch PDF, PostScript, SVG alebo TeX a MIDI na počúvanie. LilyPond sa exportuje z grafických používateľských rozhraní RoseGarden a NoteEdit a dokáže importovať ABC, ETF a MIDI.

LilyPond je súčasťou projektu GNU.
