Founded in 1984, Mr. Natural's Music School brings high quality, low cost music lessons to the Bay Area. In the
beginning, we knew we wanted to bridge the musical gap between the musicians who can only read music and
the ones who can only play by ear.
We discovered that the best way to develop well-rounded musicians who can play, improvise, read and write
music is to get them to think like composers. After years of experience, we have developed an entirely new
approach to the subject of music theory and teaching.
ALL INSTRUMENTS - ALL STYLES
How We're Different
We teach music as an art form, and we do it using intervals.
An interval is the distance between two notes. This distance can be understood in the same way by your eye, by your ear
and by your hand. We use the numbers 1 - 7 to talk about the musical scale, not ABC or Do-Re-Mi. By numbering the scale
tones we can teach students to play, read, improvise, compose and analyze music. The numbers help to expose musical
patterns and songs learned by number can be played in any key or on any instrument.
Each student's lessons are specially tailored for that student's interests.
We ask them what they want to be when they grow up, musically speaking. After learning the basics for their instrument, a
student can choose to study any style of music. Many students go on to learn a second and third instrument and are able to
apply everything they've already learned to the new instrument. Ear training exercises help students to hear rhythms,
melodies and chords so they will be able to write down the music they hear or compose.
