This is intended for subjects related to music: composition, singing, playing, (music) engineering, etc. Do not add a person to MusicBrainz just because he was someone's biology teacher!

Only pick a specific subject or instrument if it is specifically claimed. Otherwise, use the relationship as-is without selecting any subjects or instruments.
