    I could not be more excited to be opening the brand new School of Rock Buford. I taught high school English for seven years. After that I spent 14 years in the insurance industry. However, since 1989 I've been the front man for the rock band Kickin' Edgar. Next year we will be celebrating our 30th year together. My instruments include vocals, keyboards, guitar, harmonica, and even jaw harp if the need arises. I have true passion for kids, learning, and getting better each and every day. I'm looking forward to meeting and teaching the next generation of Georgia Rock and Rollers!
