  1. Plural of composer

Extensive Definition

Composers are generally people who write music. In certain musical genres, such as popular and folk music, the term "songwriter" means someone who authors both music and lyrics, but such a person may also be properly called a "composer." If a songwriter also performs, he or she is called a "singer/songwriter."
