Best Answer

Pianos have strings inside that can be tuned. But no piano player ever retunes a piano mid-performance. So in a strict sense of the word, as it applies to performance, a piano cannot change the pitch of a note. It is not a string instrument where a struck note can be "bent" up or have vibrato applied. Keyboards have a pitch wheel that can be used to artificially bend notes up or down, but not pianos. The volume of a note in piano playing is determined by how hard the key is struck, which dictates how hard the hammer strikes the strings inside.
