Musician World Music Guide »

Ian Dobson's Pan Leggo presentation thoroughly engaged and enchanted our students! The musicianship of the group is top-notch! Ian's Recycalypso sessions were very popular with the students as well. They learned a lot and had a lot of fun.

Ian is a Seattle native who turned his back on the fame and fortune of grunge stardom to travel the world performing and learning about the music of various cultures.  His travels took him all over Europe, Asia, South and Central America, Mexico, and the United States.  In the course of his musical adventures around the world he earned a Jazz Studies B.Mus and a Percussion Performance M.M. from the University of Washington, a B.A. in History from Pomona College, and he studied at the Oberlin Conservatory and the University of Lisbon.  He also has an academic background in digital media and languages and is fluent in Spanish and Portuguese.  Ian’s musical hallmark is his ability to take disparate cultural influences and mix them together. 

Ian defines his job as “musician and world music guide.”  He is equal parts performing artist, teacher, and travel guide and his vision is to bring the world together through music and technology.  He has been a full-time musician and music educator since 1998 performing and teaching throughout the US and the world and offering highly-interactive music assemblies and a cutting-edge educational web site to leverage learning before and after the performance.
