Wind instruments are NOT a good choice for life-long musicians. You can't sing and play them at the same time, nor can you play chords or harmonies. Beyond high school or college, most people will have few or no opportunities to play them and you will have to audition for a seat in a band or orchestra.

Drums are a bad choice too, since most pop music bands need only one drummer, if that, and you can't do much drumming without being part of a band.

Guitar and keyboard are the most versatile, and with guitar you can play, sing and maybe even dance too.

Better still, learn to sing well and learn to write or arrange music. Those offer the best chances to succeed if you have the talent, but you still need luck.

For 30% you are: Try the xylophone! It has a unique sound and would be a great fit for you. It's also a fun instrument because you can move around a lot when you play it. Profile B

I think the cello or the piano should fit me juuuuuuuuuuuuuust fine. Okay, I play the cello and piano. Literally, none of these instruments listed above, I've ever wanted to play.
