what is the difference between נגן and מוזיקאי?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NaftaliFri1

Musician - מוזיקאי

Instrument Player - נגן

Aren't those the same thing? In English, we don't really say "instrument player." we call that a musician.

Yeah, mostly... But מוזיקאי could be anyone who makes music, for example a singer or a composer. נגן is more specific. You only use it for someone who plays an instrument.

Instrumentalist, usually.
