Music Theory Lecturer
Domenico Angarano graduating at the Naples Conservatory of Music, Domenico Angarano attended jazz workshops in Italy, New York and London, with artists such as Medeski Martin & Wood, Cyro Baptista, David Fiuczynski.
Since relocating to London he has moved closer to the world of contemporary dance, as well as continuing to specialise in arrangement and composition. He has composed and played for Akram Khan, Hofesh Shechter, Hannes Langolf, Becky Namgauds, Jorge Crecis, the Hong Kong Academy of Arts, English National Ballet and for choreographers Riccardo Buscarini, Jean Abreu, Marso Riviere, Hagit Yakira, Lee Brummer, Leila McMillan, Krishna Zivraj, Stefano Rosato, Marie Forbes, Stefan Jovanovic.
In the last 20 years he acquired knowledge of music from South Italy, West Africa, India, Southern Europe, Brazil, Cuba and the Middle East.
As a bassist he has performed and published albums with Sarathy Korwar, Jasdeep Singh Degun, Kefaya, Slivovitz amongst others.
All of these cultures inform his creative process to aim towards a new form of western contemporary music infused in these traditions. Music that shows how connected human beings are, in a world that is politically moving towards a more fragmented and individualistic society.
Experiencing different cultures and music traditions can bring diverse audiences together. Both music and dance can become more accessible to areas of society that otherwise don’t see these forms of art as representative of contemporary society.
Domenico Angarano teaches music theory on the Advanced Diploma in Music Production and Sound Engineering as well as the Music Theory for Producers short course.
An inspiring and incredibly well designed course that gave me the best musical education I could have dreamt of. Life-altering.
The curriculum is fantastic, extremely comprehensive, contemporary and relevant to today’s industry.
This course has helped to develop me into a well rounded producer, engineer, and musician. It has helped open doors to career opportunities that I would otherwise not have had access to. I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for the fantastic team, course, and resources available at Abbey Road Institute London!
The course taught me what it means to be a producer and engineer in the industry, I learned things I couldn’t have learned anywhere else.
Abbey Road Institute trains you to deliver high quality work that matches industry standards.
I had an incredible experience. The staff have so much to offer and cover so many different areas of music.
The Abbey Road Institute helped me to unlock my musical potential.
Applying for the diploma was the best thing I could have done for my career. I'm really amazed at how much I learnt in one year.
There is some real visionary foresight in Abbey Road Institute being established to preserve the cultural legacy of Abbey Road.
It’s a unique experience in so many ways, the location, the calibre of guest lecturers and access to Abbey Road Studios for classes is pretty amazing. There aren't many places you get to record a full orchestra!
Come with an open mind and a voracious appetite to soak up the magic! Be prepared to work hard - you’ll get out what you put in.
