Hi, I'm Patrick Oberstaedt, a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and music teacher based in Philadelphia. 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, that I strive to spread that joy everywhere I can.
