Father’s Day is coming up and what better way to celebrate than by showcasing some of the best famous dad musicians in the business? Show your dad some of these amazing musicians tackling parenting and a music career and it might just inspire him to kick start his own music learning journey!

Famous Dads in Music

1. Bob Dylan

Kicking off our list with one of the most successful dads in music, Bob Dylan. Dylan has had an amazing career, after releasing his first album in 1962, he has since gone on to release 37 more albums – that’s 1 album for every 2 years he’s been alive! If that doesn’t inspire any musically inclined dads, we don’t know what will.

If your dad is a Bob Dylan fan, why not buy him some online song writing lessons  as a Father’s Day gift this year? With our HD video and sound courses, he’ll be writing songs that could rival Like a Rolling Stone in no time! 

2. John Legend

The clue is in the name with this one, John Legend is a legend! It’s hard to think about what John hasn’t accomplished all whilst being a dad. As an American singer, songwriter, pianist, record producer and film producer to name just a few, he really has done it all.

So why not get your dad some online piano lessons as a musical Father’s Day gift this year? We bet your mum will love this gift too if he can learn to play All of Me half as convincingly as John Legend. 

3. Billy Ray Cyrus

We can’t not include Billy Ray Cyrus on our famous musical dads list. Dad to some equally famous children, Billy Ray Cyrus is arguably just as famous for his own tunes as he is for being a dad. 

The country star helped his daughter Miley Cyrus rise to fame, starring alongside her in the Disney classic Hannah Montana before she went on to become a famous musician in her own right, creating modern day hits such as Wrecking Ball and Heart of Glass. 

If your dad’s a country lover, you’re in luck. We have plenty of country music courses for guitar players to help your dad to become the cowboy boots wearing star he’s always wanted to be. 

4. Dave Grohl

Dave Grohl is an all-round music extraordinaire.  He started his musical career as the drummer for the legendary rock band Nirvana no less, and he is now the singer, guitarist and lead songwriter of the world-renowned Foo Fighters.

He’s also dad to 3 daughters, the eldest of which, Violet Maye Grohl, seems to be following in his footsteps as a budding young rock star.

If your dad was a Nirvana fan back in the 90s then he is sure to love some online drum lessons this Father’s Day. Browse our online drum courses for Father’s Day gift ideas and let your dad relive his youth!

5. Lenny Kravitz

Our final famous dad is Lenny Kravitz. Lenny’s music is a celebration of almost every musical genre there is. From rock and blues to psychedelic and folk, Lenny’s music resonates with a whole host of diverse fans.

Lenny Kravitz and Zoë Kravtiz

Dad to his equally famous daughter, Zoë Kravitz, Lenny is an acclaimed singer, songwriter, guitarist, music producer and actor. If your dad’s a Lenny fan and a practising or inspiring guitarist, we have a full catalogue of acoustic and electric guitar courses that will make the perfect Father’s Day gift

With courses suitable for all abilities, from beginners to advanced players and  lifetime access to the course of their choosing, it really is the perfect Father’s Day gift.
