An electronic musical instrument is any musical instrument that produces or modifies sounds by means of electronics. Instruments such as the electric guitar that generate sound by acoustic or mechanical means but that amplify the sound electrically or electronically are also considered electronic instruments.[1]

The broad familiy of musical instruments can be classified using many systems, including Hornbastel-Sachs. Within this system, most electronic instruments, such as theremins, organs, keyboard synthesizers, and drum machines could be considered Electrophones, specifically, of type "53. Radioelectric instruments: instruments in which sound is produced by electrical means"
