I'm wondering about how to meausre the proper height of my piano bench.
I'm having some problems with my shoulders and I'm thinking it might have something to do with the height of my bench.

The proper bench height should allow the student's arm to be parallel with the floor, creating a straight line from the arm through the wrist to the hand.

The correct bench distance is one that allows the student to reach their clenched fist forward to touch the open fallboard without reaching forward or pushing back.
