Active areas of interest include concussion and brain injury, seizures and movement disorders, as well as disorders of cognition and behavior. He also has an interest in functional medicine and in healing strategies beyond pharmaceuticals and surgery. David joins us this summer and will share his experiences in neuroscience in harmonizing the conscious and unconscious.   Here's a video of him discussing the Alexander Technique:  

Bert Seager 

Pianist and composer Bert Seager has been a leading player on the jazz scene in Boston, Massachusetts, since 1981. His seventeen compact discs have won him unanimous critical acclaim from the New York Times, Keyboard Magazine, The Chicago Tribune, The Boston Globe and many other publications.

Bert's compositions, improvisations and teaching reflect both an inward and outward-looking view of life and music. He plays a varied program of originals, jazz classics and spontaneous music: always striving for transparency – framing each song's improvised narrative in a playful conversation.

Bert has performed and recorded with jazz luminaries Joe Lovano, Tim Hagans, George Garzone, Bob Moses, Jorge Roeder, Joe Hunt, Richie Barshay, John Lockwood and Hery Paz. He has toured with his band extensively both in the United States and internationally in China, Hungary, Bulgaria, Ecuador, Peru, Canada, Israel, Jordan, and Japan.

Bert is on the faculty of the New England Conservatory of Music, the first conservatory of music in the United States and the first conservatory to have a jazz department.

Three-time winner of an extended residency in music composition at MacDowell, the artists' colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire. Bert has also been a recipient of a National Endowment of the Arts grant for jazz.

He is a graduate of Haverford College and earned a masters degree from the New England Conservatory of Music in 1984.
