What Is the Most Popular Musical Instrument in America?

It’s not the drum or the guitar or any kind of horn. The piano is by far the most popular instrument in the United States, and in many other countries as well. Each year, over 750,000 new pianos are made around the world.

About 21 million Americans play the piano, that’s about one in every ten persons. More Americans play the piano than all the other musical instruments combined!

The biggest year for pianos in America was 1909, when over 350,000 pianos were sold!
