02. March 2022
Jörg Teichert lost his life in a tragic car accident on February 28, 2022.He studied jazz guitar with Frank Kuruc and jazz composition with Jürgen Friedrich at the Musikhochschule Mannheim. Stylistically, he felt at home in many areas, which was reflected in the genres of his bands and engagements: Jazz, blues, folk, rock, pop and world music he brought to sound in numerous formations with the appropriate instruments. Brass instruments or plucked instruments such as banjo and mandolin were also used. At the Popakademie Baden-Württemberg, he was responsible as a lecturer for guitar in the minor subject since 2017.The Popakademie, its lecturers, students and staff mourn the loss of an outstanding musician, an excellent lecturer and a good friend. Our thoughts are with his family. We feel with musicians who were associated with him and with all friends. "Jörg Teichert was a super guitarist, a great pedagogue and beloved colleague in our house. We wish him all the best, love and light on his way to another world." Prof. Udo Dahmen, Artistic Director and Managing Director Popakademie Baden-Württemberg.
