Of course she is! But really, much better to do something like buying some small percussion instruments, and enjoy playing together. And see the above suggestions for a pre-instrumental music group incorporating singing and moving to music. Recorder playing needs co-ordination skills as well as breath control. 6 is a good age to start for most kids.

Google 'Rhythm instruments pre-schoolers' or try a good toy shop.

Whatever I have taught, I have always tried to smuggle skills the pupil will later need into games long before they are 'needed'. It makes it so much easier for a child who has practiced lots of rhythm 'games' when later they are confronted with 'real music'. Walking and clapping, keeping a steady beat when someone else claps faster - anything. Louder, softer, higher , lower, things which needs differentiation in listening and action will help. In a group it may be more fun, but one child alone works.  It doesn't need to be in the form of a lesson either. Any time you are with a child will do.
