Louis Milton Teicher (August 24, 1924, Wilkes-Barremarker, Pennsylvaniamarker - August 3, 2008, Highlands, North Carolinamarker) was an American piano player, half of the duo Ferrante & Teicher.

Teicher died of heart failure at his summer home. He was 83.

"No one was more blessed than I to have Lou Teicher as my best friend since we met at the Juilliard School of Musicmarker at the ages of 9 and 6. Although we were two individuals, at the twin pianos our brains worked as one. Lou was certainly one of the world's most gifted pianists. I will miss him dearly and as pianists it's ironic how we both ended up living on keys," his longtime partner Arthur Ferrante, who lived on Longboat Key, Floridamarker, said in a statement at the time of Teicher's death. Ferrante subsequently died on September 19, 2009.

Teicher had been a resident of Englewood Cliffs, New Jerseymarker in the 1970s.

Teicher is survived by his current wife, Betty, as well as his former wife, Elaine Sutin, a professional violinist with both the New York Pops and the Sutton Ensemble, and three children, Richard, Susan and David, and four grandchildren.
