Singing (or music) is one of the things that Allah, Mighty and Exalted, has threatened to requite with the Fire, and this is the purport of Allah’s verse: “Among the people is he who buys diversionary words that he may lead [people] astray from Allah’s way without any knowledge, and he takes it in derision" [Qur’an 31:6]

If drums and cymbals are played at one’s house for forty days, Allah will impose a satan by the name of ‘faqandir’. The satans will infiltrate into every cell of the person’s body. With the spread of this evil, the person loses all sense of dignity and self-esteem. He will then not care as to what he says or what is said about him. Then, this satan blows into this person. As a result, he becomes utterly shameless. So mush so that he is not concerned or affected even if his women are dishonoured
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Greater Sins Vol 1, part 3, page 295; Wasaelush Shia

Muadda Ibne Ziyad says, “I was in the company of Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) when a person said, “When I go to the toilet, I can hear the singing girls of my neighbour. Sometimes, I remain (in toilet) longer so that I may listen to more of it.” Imam (a.s.) said: “Desist from listening to music and songs attentively.” Then this man further said, “Master, I do not go to music gatherings! I only hear the sounds!” Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) said, “Have you not read this Quranic verse... “Surely, the hearing and the sight and the heart, all of these shall be questioned about that?” (Surah Bani Israel 17:36) The man replied, “I was not aware of this ayat. I regret my actions. I shall not do so in the future. I repent for my past sins and I seek forgiveness from my Lord.” Seeing his condition, Imam (a.s.) said, “Get up ! Go and perform ghusl and offer namaz and pray for forgiveness. You have certainly been involved in a deadly sin and a terrible situation. You have repented for it and I thank Allah for that; and I seek forgiveness of Allah for all those things that He dislikes. Certainly, Allah only dislikes the evil things. Leave the evil things to the evil people because there are different people suitable for different things.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Greater Sins Vol 1, part 3, page 296; Al Kafi Chapter of Music

The player of flute will also be made to rise in this way as will be the drum player
