Senior Spotlight 2023: Peter Chesser

Name: Peter Joseph Chesser

Instrument: Guitar & Voice


How long have you been involved in music?

I have been involved in music for around eight years now


Why is music important to you?

Music has always been my greatest passion in life, over everything else. Music changed my life and gave me a sense of purpose and motivation to better myself when I didn’t really have much else, and it has continued to do so since then.


Tell us about your time at The bART.

The bART has allowed me to broaden my musical horizons beyond what they would have been had I not started taking lessons, and has given me the opportunity to connect with so many amazing people and musicians throughout my time with the organization.


Where will you be going from here?

I’m planning on going to TU to major in music!


A message from Peter:

I would like to give special thanks to my parents for supporting my ambitions of becoming a musician, to Tye Slagle for pushing me to explore new ways of playing and composing, and to the late Michael McClure for always believing in me and sticking with me through all of my musical highs and lows.
