Recorder is a good instrument to start on, no matter what you want to play. Recorder is pretty close to flute. I know someone who was good on recorder that now plays flute, and she's good at flute. On the other hand, I was good at recorder, and I switched to clarinet, and I'm good at clarinet. I guess it all depends what you want to play.

My advice for you is don't ask a bunch of clarinet players if you should play clarinet or flute, because most of us will say clarinet. And don't go and asks flute players the same thing, because they'll probably say flute. It's all about YOU and what YOU want to do. So go down to the music store and look at all of the different instruments. Who knows? You could find yourself head over heels for the tuba! It sounds dumb, but it happens!

Good luck! I hope you make the right decision!
