"Piano music" is a broad term used to describe any music that is written for the piano, which is a musical instrument that produces sound by striking strings with hammers. The piano is a versatile instrument that can be played in a wide variety of musical styles, from classical to jazz, pop, and contemporary music.

Classical piano music, also known as "art music," is a genre that encompasses a wide range of musical styles and composers from the Baroque period to the present day. It is characterized by its complex harmonies, counterpoint, and formal structures. The works of composers such as Johann Sebastian Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Frédéric Chopin are considered some of the most important and influential examples of piano music in the classical tradition.

Jazz piano music is a style of music that combines elements of African American gospel, blues, and ragtime with European harmony and form. It's characterized by its syncopated rhythms, improvisation and its use of chords, scales and melodies. The works of jazz pianists such as Duke Ellington, Art Tatum and Thelonious Monk are considered some of the most important examples of jazz piano music.

Pop piano music refers to the piano-based songs that are popular among a wide audience and can be heard on the radio, television and other media. It's characterized by its catchy melodies, simple harmonies and easy-to-follow structure. The works of pop pianists such as Elton John, Billy Joel, and Adele are considered some of the most popular examples of pop piano music.

Piano music is also used in film, television and video games, where it's often used to create emotional and dramatic effect, it's also used in lounge, relax, and easy listening music, where it's used to create a peaceful and calming atmosphere.
