A music instrument is a device created to make
musical sounds. Anything that makes a sound can be used
as a musical instrument.

Cultures later composed and performed a set of sounds
called a melody for entertainment. Musical instruments were
needed. Some historians report that the earliest musical

Musical instruments were developed separately in the
different countries and regions of the world, but when
civilizations shared information amongst themselves, the
development of instruments spread. For example, cultures
of North America, South America, and Central America used
similar instruments and shared these ideas of making
instruments that were alike in some way.
Many different ways have been used to classify
instruments over the years. One way to classify instruments
is to put them in groups by the range of music the
instruments can play. Another classification is to put them
together by what they are made out of. However, the most
common method of grouping instruments is by how they
produce sounds. The academic study of musical
instruments is called organology.

made and the range of music and sounds they play.

instruments are the keyboard and the synthesizer.
