comment Are short fingers detrimental to becoming a pianist?
@SaeedNeamati, speaking from experience (the question Matthew links is mine), his point about straining and stretching is very valid. When I was doing more performing and competing, it was unfortunately common to see my wrist/hand wrapped up when I was done with an event. "Oh I'm fine, just too much piano" is a weird reply when someone asks what happened. (; However, don't let that scare you/her away from leisurely play - it was only when training for high stress events and only for the few days around it.

Perhaps to you it is, but maybe it isn't to a random person who finds this question on Google. Link only answers are discouraged across the network.

Rather than an answer with nothing but a link that sends someone off to another site, it would be preferred explained your link, perhaps summarized. The goal of Stack Exchange sites are to be the place you find answers, not the place you get sent on a wild goose chase.
