    The Sax and the Flute both belong to the Woodwinds group (Allthough neither is made of wood anymore; go figure!). In an orchestra as well as smaller stage bands, the piano is considered part of the rhythm (percussion) section.

    We're not still talking about this?

    OK - since there seems to be some odd ideas flying around about how a piano is classed (strings indeed!!) check out the last line of this article - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuned_percussion .
