Aaron Irwin

Aaron was born October 26, 1978 in Decatur, Illinois. His mother and father both encouraged him to play music at an early age, and when he was 5 years old, he began taking piano lessons with Joanne Holmes at Macon Music. Although his grandmother and grandfather both taught at Macon Music and the Decatur Music Center for over 15 years, Aaron did not take to piano with much enthusiasm and at the age of 10, he switched from piano to alto saxophone with dreams of playing in a pep band and/or with Billy Joel. His first saxophone teacher was Mr. Ken Stillwell, who along with Aaron’s grandfather, played for many years in the Decatur Municipal Band (a group that Aaron would later play in as well). Aaron began studying with other local saxophonists in junior high and high school, including Perry Rask, who taught (and still does) at Millikin University. While in high school, Aaron would get to play with the locally celebrated Macarthur High School jazz band the would get to play the Montreux Jazz Festival, North Sea Jazz Festival, as well as touring Japan playing at the MUSE in Tokorozawa, Japan....
