The Art of Magic and Art of Singing are both arguably the most ancient of arts, so it is not unreasonable for soemone to assume that Bards have existed for as long - or even before - written, recorded history have been going on.
However, the truth is much different. Bards are much more recent than one would think. No credible historian can prove the existence of bards further than the foundation of the Kingdom of Froturn.
The Ancient Lizardmen were masters of magic, and also greatly appreciated music, but bards did not exist in the Ancient Lizardman Empire.
The origin of bards can be traced back to the monastic traditions of the High Elves of Froturn. Some clerics composed music whose lyrics were actual Clerical Spells. A special brand of travelling monks, the "singing priests" came into existence, singing healing spells while travelling the land, curing the ill by merely singing.
We don't know how, but this eventually started inspiring the "secular" magicians too.
While the "singing priests" gradually faded into obscurity, their secular counterparts - the Bards - slowly rose to prominance.
Even more, the Bards also managed to imbue their spells into isntrumental music - they do not even need to necessary open their mouths anymore.
