GUEST,Grishka Is a singer a musician? (114* d) RE: Is a singer a musician? 16 Mar 18

An instrument is by definition something outside the person using it. You can use your teeth for cutting or grinding, but that does not make them cutting or grinding instruments. Thus, the following are not instrumentalists: singers, whistlers, beatboxers, art-farters ..., whereas tap dancers are.

Arguably though, a singer using a microphone and amplifier can be called an instrumentalist, the instrument not being the voice. –

More importantly: a composer is definitely a musician.
