Louis Nagel is a Steinway Artist and Professor Emeritus of Piano at The University of Michigan School of Music Theatre and Dance. Winner of the Harold Haugh Award for Excellence in Teaching, he has combined his pedagogical and performance career with outreach throughout the United States and abroad. Performances and residencies have reached audiences and students in Israel, Vienna, Russia, England, Australia, Taiwan, and Poland. He is equally at home on the concert stage, classroom, or in retirement homes.
Critics have praised him as “an exciting musical intelligence combined with a brilliant technique,” “[offering a] deeply satisfying [performance] and a panorama of aural experiences,” and ”a pedagog, a performer and scholar, all synthesized.”
Louis Nagel has been called the “go-to” person to prepare students for college and conservatory auditions and for those who aspire to “the next level” in pianistic and musical artistry. He continues to teach privately and to concertize in solo appearances and in collaboration with his wife, psychologist Dr. Julie Jaffee Nagel, in unique joint master-classes that address careers in the arts, stage fright, and the importance of music in society. Louis Nagel is a graduate of The Juilliard School where he earned his Bachelor, Masters, and Doctoral Degrees. His recordings include works of Bach, Haydn, Mendelssohn, Shostakovich, Liszt, and Balakirev.
