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 master's 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 moved to the Washington D.C. area six years ago from Boston where I had been working professionally as a musician 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.

He has performed with the New World Symphony, the New Bedford Symphony, and the Boston Modern Orchestra Project.

Mr. Rohde's performance and research interests cross the boundaries between classical, world music, and jazz. From 1997-2004 he was a member of the New World Guitar Trio with whom he recorded the CD, Exiled, released in 2000 (available on itunes). While living in Boston he performed with Choro Democrático, an all-acoustic seven-piece ensemble that plays Choro, a popular Brazilian instrumental style and he frequently plays Brazilian music with various musicians in the Washington D.C. area.


Mr. Rohde holds a bachelor's degree in guitar performance from Ithaca College and a master's degree in guitar performance from the New England Conservatory. He has conducted research on Brazilian music, by traveling and studying percussion, dance and guitar in Brazil, and the U.S. and he is a contributing author of the Greenwood Encyclopedia of Latin American Popular Music. Mr. Rohde has been on the music faculty of Middlesex Community College, Bridgewater State University, and Roger Williams University where he has taught classical guitar, chamber music, improvisation, music appreciation, and seminars on Brazilian music and culture. He is currently working on a Ph. D. in musicology at Catholic University in Washington D.C. with a concentration in Latin American music and he teaches courses in music history and Latin American music at Catholic University and George Washington University.

Tom was an absolute pleasure to work with. He provided an extensive list of songs that he is proficient in and was open to many suggestions. I requested he learn a new song from my culture and he learned right away in less than a month. He met with me on the phone and responded quickly to emails. He arrived at the venue very early. Everyone loved his music. He knows how to play and is a true artist. Please consider him for your event! He is very special!

I listened to a lot of guitarists but the minute I heard Tom's playing I knew he was the right person for my daughter's wedding. He was so professional and his playing was pure heaven. We had a small family wedding of about 30 and many things became very last minute like who sits where, who walks when and with who, basic stuff. Tom knew exactly when and what to play and he just moved seamlessly from the outside ceremony to the indoor dinner and cake cutting. Tom never missed a beat. If you want someone who is friendly, professional and plays the most beautiful music then Tom Rohde is the must! I wish I could give him 10 stars!

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!
