The Lister-Sink Foundation invites you to the
25th ANNUAL INTENSIVE TRAINING WORKSHOP in Well-Coordinated, Injury-Preventive Piano and Organ Technique JUNE 7-12, 2021 - 10am -5pm EDT VIRTUAL via Zoom
“It was a fabulous week just the way it was all set up with other musicians, some of them in the same boat [injured], or others just wanting to further their own technical capacity.” Interview quote from Lister-Sink dissertation “A Study of Students’ Perceptions of the Effectiveness of an Interdisciplinary Method for Teaching Injury-Preventive Piano Technique,” Columbia University, 2015.
Dr. Barbara Lister-Sink, internationally renowned pianist and expert in injury-preventive, well-coordinated piano technique, offers immersion training in the fundamental principles of good coordination of the whole body at the piano. The substance of the Workshop is drawn from the Lister-Sink Method, a scientifically informed and research-validated means of teaching injury-preventive technique as demonstrated on the national award-winning and internationally acclaimed DVD, Freeing the Caged Bird.
