My Name is "Mr. Billups"

I'm excited to be a part of the Ware Academy Family! Music is a huge part of my life! I have been playing publicly since I was 6 years old and continue to learn more and more each day! 

I enjoy playing a variety of instruments including piano, clarinet, guitar, percussion, bass, and a few others.

I am a Christopher Newport University graduate and enjoy going to my Alma Mater to see professional performances at the Ferguson Center of the Arts. 

I'm excited for a great year!!!
