What level are they at?

That's more than enough. Take a long wood tube with a slight flare in the bore at the distal end; hollow out a cup at the near end and lightly rub in some wax. Voi là, instant brass accompaniment! That's your basic didgeridu. Keep the length down to about two feet and drill some holes in it for a cornett. If they can steam and bend, then cut bore and reglue a piece of wood (or else carve an S shaped piece out of a block) they'd have a serpent. They may finger like a woodwind, but it's the sound production that counts. Padraic. ===== Percumion farfer, ec nasteros em purfelos, polim ed siramet. -Pomperios Perfurios. .
