If they play the trombone with pistons yes. (Thoughtful). Also bombardino and tuba, because they have the same fingering.
It is a conical metal wind instrument, from the mouthpiece to the bell the tube becomes a little wider, unlike the trumpets that are considered cylindrical. It comes from the German flügel, which developed towards low-pitched sounds adding keys and giving rise to the oficleide (1817), also known as figle. This was like a kind of bassoon with keys and a trombone mouthpiece.
When valves were invented and accepted, they were quickly incorporated into metal instruments. Thus, the fiscorn of cobla is a bass flugelhorn (Bassflügelhorn) with valves, of Germanic origin, with wide pipe and totally conical. Possibly between the year 1840 and 1850, the Italian constructor A. Rampone, fruit of a order of Spanish origin, fabricated the first fiscorn for a cobla.
The Catalan musician Pep Ventura in 1840 began to update the cobla and replaced the oficleides of that time with the fiscorn. Right now it is in Catalonia where it is played the most in the world, and possibly the only place.

The cobla is the instrumental assembly typical of Catalonia. Currently, after Pep Ventura's reform, it was left with a stable group of 11 musicians playing 12 instruments: flabiol and tamborí, 2 tibles, 2 tenoras, 2 trumpets, 1 trombone, 2 bass flugelhorns and a double bass. The cobla is in charge of playing sardanas (almost always in the street because it is folk music), although there are also other music genres for coblas: symphonic music, dance songs and concerts.
"It is necessary to prepare the children musically very well from the basis, because if the basis is not solid, what comes later is worse."
Uf! Everyday life is complicated at school, because you have to do a lot of previous work. I have small children (nervous laughter). The truth is that classes are a small part of the work because most of it is the preparation of those classes.
I am happy because with the help of my experience and the materials I am accumulating, it becomes more and more enjoyable. It is necessary to prepare the children musically very well from the basis, because if the basis is not solid, what comes later is worse.
