The Music Lesson, 1877,
Art Print

A musician performs or writes music and can be classified by their roles:

• singer or vocalist
• instrumentalist - playing an instrument
• composers and songwriters
• conductors of orchestras

Dancers, such as tap dancers, could be considered musicians as they use rhymetic body movements, usually “in time” with music, to communicate.
