Lindner began playing piano at the age of eight, and continued his playing throughout his life, studying Jazz piano over the years with Richard Delaney, leader of the Mambo Kings, at the Hochstein School of Music, and Mike Van Allen at Roberts Wesleyan College. He also studied Classical piano with Emma Yun-chieh Hsieh, a talented musician from the Eastman School of Music.

Most recently, Lindner has been bringing his piano compositions into Ableton (an electronic music software) to explore and create sounds during a live performance. Microphones placed in his piano pick up the sound and send it through Ableton where audio effects are added.
