About the Lister-Sink Institute

The Lister-Sink Institute is an educational organization dedicated to promoting a healthful, well-coordinated piano technique, to maximize musical artistry and help prevent potential injury at any point in the career. This organization is at the forefront of the global effort to:

  • Define the principles of well-coordinated, biomechanically-based technique
  • Promote these principles in educational institutional and private studio settings
  • Maximize artistic potential with a healthful, reliable technique
  • Prevent playing-related injury over a musician’s lifetime
  • Engage with the medical community in research and developing treatments for playing-related injuries

The Lister-Sink Institute (Formerly WINGSOUND International) was founded in 1996 by Barbara Lister-Sink in the wake of her production of the video/DVD Freeing the Caged Bird—Developing Well-Coordinated, Injury-Preventive Piano Technique. Income from all private training and video sales is used to further this mission.
