In brief: RIght away if healed
If your fracture has healed, start playing! (usually it takes about 4-8 weeks to heal a fracture.

In brief: Piano, guitar any
Instrument is great way to get motion back after a hand or finger injury.
The key is, " is your fracture stable" as fractures come in many shapes and sizes even in fingers. A non displaced hairline fracture might be ready in 2 1/2 - 3 weeks while a displaced fracture may take 8 weeks or more.
