Meet Michael, singer of Michael Dixon Trio,
with Patti Martin and Dylan Vaughn
Michael was born in Frankfurt am Main and grew up in New York City. The music all started with the piano that his uncle bought him. Then came dancing in the schoolyard to 60s Motown, and singing in the Sunday church choir - a life spent with a deep connection to music.
His first studies were at State University College of Fredonia, NY, then Southern Illinois University and Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana . He taught at Xavier University, New Orleans before making the grand move to further his career in Europe.
New horizons were opened with his work as conductor and musical director in the show Cats in Hamburg, Germany where he met Patti Martin and Dylan Vaughn with whom he makes music today.
He also worked as conductor of CATS in Amsterdam und Paris. And since 1996 has been professor for musical voice at the Universität der Künste Berlin (University of the Arts in Berlin).
As both a singer and conductor/director Michael has worked for many film, musicals, and cross over projects.
