I thought I would pick a simple image to start with. I used the pen tool to create block black shapes and the line tool to create the orange bits.

The spiral tool was very use for the details on the trumpet and the snap to point setting meant I could link up the lines and arcs.

I found the for tubes of the trumpet and sax I used a line and the width tool to make bits wider and narrower. 

For the valves and piano I used the rectangle tool then pulled and pushed to anchor points.
