Term Definition

A musical instrument is an instrument created or adapted to make musical sounds.
In principle, any object that produces sound can be a musical
instrument—it is through purpose that the object becomes a musical
instrument. The history of musical instruments dates to the beginnings
of human culture. Early musical instruments may have been used for
ritual, such as a trumpet to signal success on the hunt, or a drum in a religious ceremony.
