Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica and Adele have something in common.
These chart-topping international acts have all worked with music producer Andrew Scheps and, next week, TAFE NSW Newcastle will join the list too.
Mr Scheps will attend their Trending Now: Creativity2020+ event on Wednesday to deliver a masterclass to students.
House musicians from popular television show The Voice will also be at the event.
TAFE NSW's Teresa Conicella said this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for budding musicians, singers, and sound engineers and producers to learn from some of the best in the business.
"Anyone who is interested in a creative career should come along to interact with Andrew Scheps and watch the TAFE NSW Newcastle students go head-to-head in a studio duel with the house musicians from The Voice," Ms Conicella said.
"The musicians will demonstrate how they work with artists, how they deal with tight deadlines and how they maintain their performance level".
"The week is jam-packed with workshops, live musical performances and interactive sessions, which is a great way for anyone who is thinking about studying at TAFE NSW to come along and experience what it's like to learn in our hands-on facilities."
TAFE NSW Newcastle graduate Tegan Sadler will be there too, sharing her techniques and experiences including a mixing a session in the in-house sound production studio.
"I discovered my passion for music and production while studying an Advanced Diploma of Sound Production at TAFE NSW and learnt practical skills that I am using in my job every day," she said.
"Anyone who is interested in a creative career should come along to this event."
The full timetable of activities of public events are:
