The singer's five-year-old daughter Scarlett and four-year-old son Henry - his kids with estranged wife, supermodel Karen Elson - play together in their own group called Coke - and the star believes they could have what it takes to make it in the music industry.
The former The White Stripes frontman tells the New York Times: "They're little vaudeville kids. They've been onstage for school plays and stuff, and they're not nervous at all.
"You can see in Henry's eyes that he really watches the creation of things. And Scarlett is very much a producer - she likes to tell how it's going to happen. We were messing around a couple of weeks ago, and she was like, 'I'm hearing two pianos...'"
But White insists the kids didn't name their band after their favourite soda: "They've never had a Coke. I think they just liked the syllable."
White and Elson announced plans to divorce last year after six years of marriage.
