These musicians decide what instrument plays what in an orchestra. They arrange or compose music for an orchestra.
They write the music from the fundamental ideas of harmony, melody, rhythm, and expression. They do it with a pen or paper, or a computer, and are mostly behind the scenes.
They lead orchestras, chambers, choirs, concert bands, etc. Generally, big bands are led by conductors and sometimes they act as a composer. These people keep time, help expression, schedule rehearsals, plan concert season, hear auditions, and select members of a band.

Jazz Musicians: Jazz musicians are quite different from classical musicians as they have their own genre. They are not very good with sheets but have a better understanding of harmony, chord structure etc. They are also termed as modern musicians.
Contemporary Musicians: Pop, rock, blues etc all fall under this category. These are modern players who are pretty good with whatever they play. Some popular ones are Sandara Park, Lea Salonga, Sarah Geronimo, Amapola, actually, the list is endless.
