Description:
William Schimmel has an earned Doctorate of Music from The Juilliard School. He is a composer, authour, lecturer, philosopher, and virtuoso accordionist. He performs music from the classical realm to pop and has performed and recorded with every major symphony orchestra. Pop star colleagues range from Sting to Tom Waits, who says, "Bill Schimmel doesn't play the accordion; he is the accordion."

Regarded as the "World's Greatest Accordionist" by National Public Radio, he is also considered an authority on Kurt Weill's music on accordion. He is a prolific composer from concert stage to Broadway theater, including countless accordion works, test pieces, and commissions
from the American Association (AAA). Bill is the founder of the renowned Tango Project has appeared with Oscar winner Al Pacino in the film Scent of a Woman and has commissioned prominent composers. Keyboard Magazine (1992) cited Dr. Schimmel as "Best Accordionist" and the figure who philosophically has done the most to elevate the accordion's image in mainstream musical forms, such as classical, ethnic, avant garde, and pop. Dr. Schimmel's theatre works made accordion history.

Dr. Schimmel has taught at Juilliard, Brooklyn College (C.U.N.Y), Neupauer Conservatory (Dean), Upsala College and has lectured on Accordion related subjects at Princeton, Brandeis, University of Missouri and Columbia. He now heads the Neupauer Condervatory Order of the Shield Program in New York, a private studies program for gifted students on the university and graduate level. He is married to dancer/choreographer Micki Goodman. They have a 19 year old son Michael, a special Olympics winner.
