A pianist is a professional musician who specialises on the piano. Because the piano can be used to perform almost any kind of Western music, pianists have a diverse repertory and a diverse range of genres to select from, including conventional classical music, jazz, blues, and all types of popular music, including rock & roll. The piano is a keyboard instrument, and most pianists are capable of playing other keyboard-related instruments such as the harpsichord, celesta, and the organ, to some degree.
