TheSnail Is a singer a musician? (114* d) RE: Is a singer a musician? 15 Mar 18

I've heard it said that anyone who plays an instrument, e.g a fiddle or a guitar or a flute, should call themselves an instrumentalist not a musician.

A friend of mine, a very good fiddler, says disdainfully "An instrumentalist plays an instrument, a musician plays music".

A couple of people have said on this thread that the voice is a musical instrument. Does that make a singer an instrumentalist?
