A / The piano is a kind of instrument.

Hi everyone

If I want to say (A / The) piano is a kind of instrument. Which article should I use? And can I say Pianos are a kind of instrument.

Thank you!

    I would use 'the'.

    The piano is a musical instrument.

    Many musical instruments take the definite article most of the time anyway. What I am saying is that much of the time musical instruments do not follow the normal rules. You play the piano, the guitar, the violin, etc.
