What is the problem with a child wanting to play the flute or the violin. Sure we would all love to see our children and younger relatives play the Tuba, but there are other instruments in the band. Try to swallow the desire to "Push" young players in a direction they don't want to go. I would rather see a play a flute (amateur of pro) all of the their life rather than play the Tuba for a few years. You can never tell, they might migrate to a more agreeable instrument after a few years.
Just a friendly suggestion.
