Keith was a huge part of helping lay down the foundation of my rock and pop understanding on the guitar. He started right at square one with me and was meticulous when it came to guiding me in the right direction as far as guitar playing was concerned. I use the information he provided me with both on and off the stage!

In my opinion, Mr. Irwin has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to classic, contemporary Rock and Roll, an open style of teaching, and a music program suitable for all. Not only that, his new Irwin CAD-40 amplifier is state-of-the-art, which combines time-tested technology with modern electronics to create a very diverse sound which can emulate any era of Rock and Roll, Funk, etc. on guitars and bass guitars.
