Peter Dasent

Peter Dasent – Musician

Peter Dasent may not be a name bantered around the dinner table much but guaranteed his music has caused many a conversation.

As piano player on Play School, Peter was introduced to Justine Clarke… and the rest is current history.

It’s a small club that holds gold and platinum records in the children’s market, but Peter, through the voice of Justine, has given our children some of their greatest music ever.

All hail Mr Dasent.
