    It is a musical term which instructs the musician to strike, blow or hit the note then immediately stop. It is the opposite of sustain. If you were playing stuccatto on the piano, you would press down on the key then release it as soon as you possibly could. I hope that makes sense!

  • Staccato was actually my favorite playing style on the violin. The easiest way to describe it is short choppy notes. One of the easiest ways to make a stringed instrument give a staccato sound is via pizzicato, which is plucking the strings.

    It is "stacatto;" it's a series of short, sharp notes. It's often used to suggest quickness or speed in music; it can sometimes suggest delicacy as well.
