Nurturing Musical Interests

I want my kids to develop an interest in music. At 2 and 5 years old I'm not running out to buy them jerry jones guitars, but I am working to point them in the direction of the instruments they want to learn to play. My oldest runs around the house with a recorder most days trying her best to play Mary Had A Little Lamb. Does this mean she'll want to play a wind instrument when she's older? Probably not, but I still want to nurture her love of that little recorder. Actually, she is rather fond of the drums, and she has asked if her grandpa will teach her how to play. I want to invest in a few instruments my kids can grow with, so I'm considering purchasing a child size drum set. It might drive me crazy, but it will melt my heart at the same time!
