The Greatest Musicians of All Time

Posted by Darrell's Music Hall on October 14, 2018

Everybody has a favorite musical artist they love to listen to. Modern-day titans of the music scene include Ariana Grande, Kanye West, and Beyonce. The job of musicians is to entertain but also inspire people to follow their own passions. Oftentimes, listening to music convinces people to create music themselves by playing pianos in NH. While some musicians fade out as a one-hit wonder, others go on to become legends. Here, in no particular order, are some of the greatest musicians of all time.


You can’t not include Beethoven in a list of excellent musicians. His compositions in classical music have stood the test of time. Contemporary orchestras continue to play his music to delight orchestral audiences around the world. He’s all the inspiration you need to play pianos in NH.


Miles Davis

Speaking of standing the test of time, Miles Davis had a career spanning forty years or recording. Known as the King of Cool, his trumpet playing took him through various styles of music. From jazz to rock to bebop and fusion, Miles Davis could do it all like never before.



This material girl never shied away from the spotlight. She had more iconic hits during her career than most people can hope for. From her energetic “Express Yourself” to emotional “Papa Don’t Preach”, a list of great musicians is incomplete without the original Queen of Pop.


Michael Jackson

If Madonna was the Queen of Pop, Michael Jackson was the Prince of Pop and so much more. While his personal life was always tabloid fodder, his vocals were unparalleled. Even after his death, nobody has recreated his charisma, voice, or talent.


Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan is an artist so impactful in his lyrics that he won the Nobel Prize in Literature. His folksy-rock anthems and uncontested tone of voice has captivated audiences for decades. Even in his older age, he’s still giving everything he has to his fans.


Billie Holiday

Some say you need to write your own songs to be the best, but Billie Holiday disproved that time and time again. Her voice was so powerful it could interpret any song and make it her own. She used her soul to summon emotion from within and give it to her audiences.


Freddie Mercury

Few people have been able to fascinate audiences like Freddie Mercury and his band Queen. His lyrics were clever and erratic. Wholy and uniquely himself, Freddie Mercury never compromised his voice or personality to fit in. Plus, “We Will Rock You” is a favorite at sporting events.


Notorious B.I.G.

You can’t ignore the original rap master on a list of great musicians. While his feud with Tupac only helped his success, the Notorious B.I.G. had an attitude and view of the world that created countless hits like “Juicy” and “Hypnotize” until his death in 1997.

Follow in the footsteps of these musicians, and you could be the next great musician. For lessons, music, and pianos in NH, contact Darrell’s Music Hall at 800-339-6818 or visit them online!
