    About Attila C.

    5.0
    (1)
    I am a professional jazz and session guitarist, composer, arranger, and recording artist. I earned my Master's degree from Western Oregon University in Contemporary Music (guitar emphasis). In addition, I graduated from Franz Liszt Music Academy (Europe) with a Bachelors's of Music as a Jazz Guitar Performer and Teacher. I'm an adjunct rock guitar professor at Clackamas Community College in Oregon. I offer customized guitar lessons tailored to the student's needs, e.g., technique, repertoire, and performance. I am an experienced, enthusiastic, patient, and friendly teacher. I work well with people of various ages, temperaments, and abilities so that each of them feels special, valued, and encouraged. I also can teach how to read music, rhythms, ear training, music theory, orchestration/arranging (from small combos to big bands), and the Kodaly method. I am seasoned in teaching and performing, with plenty of routines on stage from the smallest pubs to the largest arenas, in multiple styles like jazz, musical, rock, pop, and gospel. My motto shares the thoughts of Joe Diorio - he is one of my favorite guitarists and educator: "Teaching is the highest thing you can do - helping people to help themselves or maybe fulfill their dreams." My home studio is in Multnomah Village SW Portland, close to Lake Oswego/Tigard/Tualatin and Beaverton. Also, I provide online lessons, too.
