I thought it would be interesting if Blizzard implemented a /play or /music command and, similar to dance, would have your character pull out an instrument respective to their race and jam out on it. Since aforementioned instrument would be lore-related, the role-playing board was the first place I came to, as you're the authority on such matter. Now I'm wondering what instruments each race would play.
I was thinking Trolls would play an under-arm drum, Goblins would have an electric guitar of sorts...
I remember bards being mentionned in one of the Argent Tournament dailies (I think the one involving retrieving an enchanted sword or another). There's also that dwarf in Twilight Highlands. Sure, it's not a class (Yet), but I think the instrument emote would be a good idea.
Humans could have an acoustic* guitar, Dwarves could have a violin (Or bagpipes), Gnomes/Goblins could have an electric guitar, Night Elves could have an harmonica (Can't think of anything else).
*Sorry if it's spelled wrong, I can't remember exactly how it's spelled.

For sure bagpipes and maybe big horns like this http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2012/273/7/d/warhammer_dwarf_musician_sides_by_hobbittzu-d5gc6ds.jpg
Orcish throat singing with kodo war drum relics of the Third War?
Here's my speculation:
Gnomes: Either some strange techno stuff... or a triangle.
Night Elves: Flute
Undead: Electric Guitar
Blood Elves: Harp
Edit: Oh and.. pandaren get.. uh.. the gong or something.

Here's my speculation:
I like those ideas, but I still think Humans should get a guitar or a banjo.
And you forgot the goblins.
More travel-sized instruments that don’t require an electric power supply…
And while I made some suggestions, it doesn’t necessarily disqualify other race from playing or enjoying the instrument.
Concertina – Human, Dwarf
Mandolin – Human, Dwarf, Eastern Elves
Pipa - Pandaren
Hurdy gurdy – Draenei, I could see an Orc liking these too; cool sound, big keys for big hands
Harp, autoharp and dulcimers – Elves, human, dwarf, everybody really.
African style harps/banjos - Trolls
Thumb pianos – Troll
Ocarina –Tauren, maybe Troll
Harmonica – Human, Dwarf, Gnome, Goblin (Tauren might like them if they got one of an equitable size)
Wood or reed flutes, recorders, pan-flute –Kaldorei, Tauren, Pandaren
Horns, literally made from a horn – Kaldorei, tauren, possibly Orc.
Clarinet, obo – I think a goblin would swing that liquorish stick, and like a reedy sound in general.
Bon.gos* – Troll, Goblins (Dig it mon! I dig it baby!)
Spoons / bones – Every one except Elves; they’d play castanets
Voice – Everybody’s got one!
Perhaps they could manage, but I see large fangs and tusks being a detent to wind instruments, at least for more melodic applications, so I don’t think Trolls and Orc would be that into them. That said, Orcs might develop a form of bellows-driven Bagpipe, and appreciate the blare of multiple drones.
(*Heheh, filtered me for drug paraphernalia!)
