#beginquote# If piano is classified as both percussive and string (I can see reasons for both) then what family would you classify the accordian? Why not make the distinction it is of the "keyboard" (sort of miscellaneous) family? Keyboard instruments are often classified as percussion instruments because they play a rhythmic role in some music. However, most keyboard instruments are not true members of the percussion family because their sound is NOT produced by the vibration of a membrane or solid material. Sound is produced on the piano by small hammers striking strings. The hammers are controlled mechanically and strike the strings when the player's hands press the piano keys. What do you all think?:D #endquote#
