Mr. Natural's Music School
Mr. Natural is both an artist and a scientist and has bridged these
disciplines throughout his life. In the 50’s, he was a child star, singing
and dancing weekly on Chicago’s local “Little Rascals” TV show. Mr.
Natural began playing accordion and French Horn as a child. He
continued to play French Horn at Prosser High School and through the
60’s in the nationally acclaimed Vanguard Drum and Bugle Corps.
Later, he met composer Bill Russo and played the first amplified jazz
French Horn with Stan Kenton’s band. An audiophile and electronic
music aficionado, Mr. Natural also pursued a career in research and
development as an electronic engineer for Warwick Electronics and
It was when he came to San Francisco, crossing paths with Janis
Joplin and the artist, R. Crumb in the Haight-Ashbury, that he became
known as Mr. Natural. Here, he discovered his flair and passion for
teaching and for translating complex subjects into layman’s terms.
After inventing the Intervalometer and developing a novel way to teach
music with Lynne Vanne in the 90’s, Mr. Natural has learned to play
almost every musical instrument.
Lynne A. Vanne has a degree in Music Composition and
Performance from Macalester College in St. Paul, MN. An
accomplished pianist and accompanist, Ms. Vanne also
studied electronic music and enjoys songwriting and
multi-track recording. In addition to the piano, Ms. Vanne
plays the harpsichord, flute, piccolo, guitar, bass, violin and
