composer



[Eng.]


The person who writes music (conceptualize and notate). A composer is thought of as a performer but, more recently, a composer is not considered a performer in the pre-20th century sense. Presently composers are rarely able to support themselves by writing (composing) music unless they specialize in popular music. Composers of classical music are often involved in teaching.
