French guitar phenomenon Thomas Viloteau enjoys shaking things up. His approach to the instrument, its repertoire and its technique, has reshaped the term ‘classical’ guitar, into something new, alive and forward thinking.


He is the winner of the Guitar Foundation of America and the Francisco Tárrega competitions, author of the best-selling technique book "In the Black Box," the only guitarist to ever win the Arthur Foote Award from the Harvard Musical Association, winner of the Northern Trust/Piper Enrichment Award which allowed him to commission Sergio Assad’s Suite Brasileira 3, and Artist in Residence for the APM show "Performance Today."


He holds a Doctoral degree from the Eastman School of Music and will join the faculty at the Peabody Institute in the Fall of 2019.
