Thanks, Aulos303 !
Since posting that, I opted for ease-of-learning and unique tonality, and gifted her with one of Butch Hall’s quite affordable E-minor (tenor-sized) red cedar Native American Style flutes.
It is simply gorgeous looking, and the tone is beautiful.
She loves it, and was able to discover some beautiful music by just “noodling around” with it.
A bit later, I sent her one of my own upper-end Yamaha ABS alto recorders (she ain’t getting my little Aulos Haka, OK?).
She was delighted, but at this point she can’t seem to put down the Red Cedar wooden flute long enough to gain any traction with the alto recorder.
Oh yes native flute is very addictive at the start. Its great for pulling out when you’re in a meditative mood. Especially when played in a tunnel like this:
You don't stop playing when you get old. You get old when you stop playing.
