Hi, I'm Patrick Oberstaedt, a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and music teacher based in Brooklyn.  I specialize in guitar, upright bass and electric bass, but also perform professionally on saxophone, trumpet, mandolin, banjo and percussion.  I play in jazz combos, acoustic groups, party bands and theatrical productions.  


I have a degree music education and jazz performance from Temple University's Boyer College of Music and Dance.  I get such joy from teaching, writing and playing music, and strive to spread that joy everywhere I can.
