    Joseph Fogel (born August 16, 1903 or 1904) was a concert pianist and music teacher. Born in Russia but emigrating with his family to Los Angeles during infancy, Fogel showed early promise as a pianist and received his musical training with the help of local patrons. He gave his first performance at the age of eight, in a concert sponsored by the Los Angeles Conservatory of Music and Arts; he graduated high school at age 12. In 1920, he moved to New York City to continue his musical training, and afterwards to Paris, where he stayed for five years, studying under Isidor Philipp and other teachers. At 21, he returned to Los Angeles, where he gave concerts and worked as a piano teacher. He died May 14, 1976 in Los Angeles.
