The Piano is the basis of all music. I'm sure most of you know that piano is played by means of a keyboard. The sound is made when a felt tipped hammer hits the steel strings when the keyboard is played.
The piano was founded on earlier technical innovations such as the harpsichord and the clavichord. The modern piano was credited to Bartolomeo Cristofori in Italy.
And Percussion is the heart beat of all music. The word "percussion" is derived from the Latin words "percussio" translated to beat or strike in a musical sense and the word "percussus" which is a noun meaning "a beating".
Percussion instruments can be classified as making a definite pitch or an indefinite pitch. An example of a definite pitch would be an instrument such as a timpani or marimba which plays pitched sounds in order to play a melody.
An example of an indefinite pitch is an instrument that produces a sound where no pitch is discernable such as a snare drum or cymbals.
