He was born Peter Halsten Thorkelson on February 13, 1942 in Washington, D.C. While growing up, he showed an aptitude for music as he began playing the piano at the age of nine.

Tork attended Windham High School in Willimantic, Connecticut and E. O. Smith High School in Storrs, Connecticut, where he graduated. Before moving to New York City to pursue a folk music career, he attended Carleton College, where he became friends with soon-to-be musicians like Stephen Stills.

Peter Tork won the role, joined The Monkees. and became the most proficient musician in this band.
