About 6', and can reach an augmented 11th, with a little bit of effort, but I'm still growing.

Pianonoob--yikes--playing 12s in pieces? So learn Rach 3rd Concerto! (I better be careful--I'm only 5'11"--shouldn't get started up with a 6'9" pianist!)

6'1-and-a-half. I can play a 10th easily, 11th with a very light stretch and just just just a 12th if i stretch a lot, Which is more than my piano teacher, who is 6'7"

But I'm 15 and still growing!

5'10.5" When you're a guy under 6', every half inch takes on an added dimension.
