Minoo (Mē-N(y)u) Dixon (b. 1999) is an American composer.

Minoo grew up in Suwanee, Georgia, where he not only developed an aspiration to become a composer but also an conductor and clarinet performer. In 2018 Minoo began attending Berklee College of Music, where he was able to absorb and develop his contemporary music skills, but realized his passions in composition aligned more closely with the concert hall and transferred to New England Conservatory in 2020 to study composition under the tutelage of Michael Gandolfi. He is currently [2023] starting his graduate studies at University of Texas at Austin’s Butler School of Music.

Mr. Dixon is an Asian-American composer who has been recognized by ASCAP and National Federation of Music Clubs. Throughout his years of composing, he has been awarded Senior Composition Competition Winner by MTNA, the Donald Martino Award for Excellence in Composition, two NEC Honors Ensemble Composition Competitions, and a Finalist of the ASCAP Foundation Morton Gould Young Composers Awards Competition. Minoo’s pieces also have been performed at locations such as Carnegie Hall, Busan Cultural Center, Berk Hall at Berklee, and Jordan Hall.
