My eleven year old son is considering joining band next year and keeps bringing up playing the flute. I don't want him to play the flute, I don't think its a masculine instrument. I would rather he play the trumpet, saxaphone, or french horn or any brass instrument. I always see girls playing the flute. What do you think? Ultimately it is his decision and I will let him play what he wants.....

I would let him play the flute and tell him you support whatever he wants to play. If the kids make fun of him he will likely stop, and will never be stuck saying " I always wanted to play the flute in high school but my mother never approved." (making it your fault)
Or.... He will totally love it, never care what the other kids say and get a full scholarship to an expensive college because of it. Just think.....

In fact I always wanted to play the flute but my parents wouldn't let me and made me try the claranet instead. I was bored with it and dropped it after 5 months. Then I never did any other activities in school , I spent most of my free time smoking pot :) true story. Let the kid try the flute, your lucky he has interests.
