Is piano sheet music the same as violin sheet music?
No. Piano sheet music has 2 clefts per line, and violin sheet music has only 1 cleft per line. That being the case, Piano sheet music is roughly 2-3 times as many pages as violin sheet music. However, both piano and violin read treble cleft, so you could have piano play the bass cleft and the violin play the treble cleft. Today piano and violin sheet music are two very popular categories. So they can be easily found separately. 2nd Answer: In case you are interested, the word is "Clef", not "Cleft".

When you go and octave higher on the piano do you write it the same if you were an octave lower when you are composing a song?
While I do not understand your question, I will try to answer it! You have two clefts, the treble or G cleft and the bass of F cleft. (There are also special clefts which we will not get into.) Together they make up the Grand Staff. OK so far? Those are the notes you play. If the music is above or below the cleft, you will see ledger lines. Those are little lines above or below the cleft lines. Now, Say the composer wants to use the notes at the top of the keyboard for some unknown reason. You will see a little 8 above the Treble cleft signature. That is telling you to shift up an octave. Then the bottom ledger line will no longer mean the E above middle C but the E one octave above that. If you look at a lot of choral music, you will see an 8 below the Treble Cleft Signature on the tenor line. That means the tenors should sing the same notes as the Treble Cleft only one octave lower. You could even put a 16 under the Bass Cleft Signature if you were writing music for a 5 string double bass. It can reach the lowest note on the piano. How else would you indicate it? Can you imagine the ledger lines? I would get confused!
Are triple and treble synonymous or why the use of treble outside music?
Yes. Triple and Treble both mean three times as much, though triple is more informal than treble. Treble in music originated as one of three clefs - that is treble, bass and alto. It is sometimes thought that treble in SATB originated in all male choirs with no soprano singers and young boys as altos, therefore being one of three as well.

Is the Baritone saxophone played on the bass clef or the treble clef?
bass clef EDIT: The person who said bass cleft is only 50% right... Baritone Horn music is also written in Treble Clef and it is transposed to Bb. So for example.. if you played the trumpet, you cane easily switch to baritone horn and read music off of Treble Clef.. the fingerings would be the SAME, the note would ust be an octace lower. If the music were in Bass Clef, you'd have to transpose half a step high because Baritone Horns are in Concert key (C).
