No, but in music theory, piano is every other instrument spelled out very simply. If you are a fluent piano player, it opens doors to other instriuments

Not so much originate....the piano is just what most music can be traced back to, and is a good example for teaching music theory. The first instruments were small flutes and animal skin drums, not Pianos.
Black then white are all I see,
in my infancy, red and yellow then came to be.

I don't think the Sitar originates from piano, but I could be wrong.

Listen to jazz, it's good for you...

doesn't the piano come from the harpsichord? I think I remember reading that somewhere.
#10
Organ and harpsichord predate piano. Hell, Bach even predates piano for most (if not all) of his life.

Not even close. Pianos were invented around 1700? Similar ideas were around longer, but the piano was much later.
#13
i think in the evolution of instruments, no, everything doesn't come from a piano

however, all music for any instrument (except drums) can be performed on a piano

The piano wasn't invented until the late 1600s/early 1700s, so not really. But it is a great instrument that can be used in almost any form of music, so I can understand why you ask.

I'm pretty sure makeshift drums were the first instruments, and bone flutes were the first instruments with defined tones.
