Would it be correct to classify the biceps muscle as a tissue?

The biceps muscle in the upper arm consists of striated muscle fibres bound together.

Contraction of the biceps results in the forearm being raised.

It would be accurate to classify the biceps as a muscle.  The banded muscular tissue in the forearm allows the movement of the forearm to the shoulder.  In actuality, the bicep muscle consists of three muscles. They are the biceps brachii (main bicep muscle), brachialis (the outside bicep muscle) and brachioradialis (the connector muscle between the main bicep and the forearm muscle).  They are all bound together by the striated tissue which allowed forearm movement.  This tissue is skeletal muscular tissue for it is under voluntary countrol and its characteristics of being banded together helps to endure physical demands.

The muscle is a contractile tissue composed of muscle cells!

Muscle fiber is structurally-functional unit of muscle tissue.

Brachial triceps muscle (triceps brachii) - allows the extension arm at the elbow
Brachial biceps muscle (biceps brachii) - allow bending the arm at the elbow, making the opposite move by brachial triceps muscle.

Brachial triceps muscle and brachial biceps muscle are antagonists muscle  which are participating to movements in the same direction but in opposite, one nears two bones, the other, departs.

They are muscles with multiple origins and a single terminal tendon.

In biology, tissue refers to a group of cells, similar in structure and function, that together perform some common function in a living being. Groups of tissues combine to form organs in animals and plants.

Muscles form one type of tissues in animals. The muscle tissues are tough and elastic thread like structures capable of contracting and relaxing. This property of muscle tissues allows muscles to move body parts and to cause movements of substances such as blood through the body.

As bicep is a muscle, it is also made up of muscle tissues.
