I am a guitarist that specializes in Classical, Brazilian, and Spanish guitar music and I play on a nylon-stringed, classical guitar. I am a graduate of the New England Conservatory in Boston, MA where I earned a Masters degree in classical guitar performance with honors. I have been playing guitar for over 30 years and have performed throughout Brazil, Taiwan and the United States as a soloist and chamber musician. I recently moved to the Washington D.C. area from Boston where I had been working professionally since 1994. I have performed at the Museum of Fine Arts, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Ryles Jazz Club, the Regattabar and have played at many hotels, restaurants, weddings and private parties throughout New England and the Washington D.C. area. I have excellent sound equipment and I am able to play in a variety of settings. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like more information.

Tom's the best! A pro from beginning to end. And, of course, a top notch musician. We had him play during cocktails before and after our wedding ceremony in a cozy restaurant in Alexandria VA. He was perfect for the setting, and we loved his Spanish and Brazilian repertoire. Wouldn't hesitate a second to recommend. Great guy and superb musician. Don't look elsewhere, book him now!

We would highly recommend Tom! Communicating and coordinating with him prior to the wedding was hassle-free and simple. He was very obliging and put together an arrangement of a modern song I wanted to use for the processional, he even gave us the sheet music afterwards! He played beautifully and is obviously a very talented musician, and the pieces he selected for the prelude to our ceremony and cocktail hour were perfect.

Tom was amazing! He played a truly amazing mix of Classical and Spanish music. The elegance his music added to the ambiance of the wedding and cocktail hour created a magic atmosphere which all the guests complimented us on. We were really happy to have him play at our wedding and would recommend him to others without hesitation.
