PRACTICE makes perfect.

That's the advice superstar Ed Sheeran had for two Rockhampton students.

Yeppoon State High School student Caitie Hughes and Emmaus College student Riana Kielly got the opportunity of a lifetime to join a mentoring session with the singer-songwriter in Brisbane at the weekend.

The session was part of the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience, a program that engages with Rockhampton students to support them through high school.

Caitie said she was in tears when she met Sheeran and couldn't quite believe it.

"I gained a lot from the workshop," Caitie said.

"Ed shared a lot of his stories about how he got into the music industry and it's helped me decide if I want to get into the industry or not.

"Singing is what I want to do," she said.

For Riana, meeting her idol gave her a confidence boost and encouraged her to continue with her songwriting.
