Jacob Butler is joining the faculty this year as our Double Bass teacher. He will be taking on the Double Bass Scholarship students and volunteering with the Orchestra as a lower strings coach.
Jacob has been section leader of the National Youth Orchestra of Ireland for the last few years and has toured with them to the Netherlands and various other venues.
He also traveled to Bratislava and Vienna as a guest of the Ulster Youth Orchestra and was invited to join the Welsh Youth Orchestra, playing Mahler 5 with them in Cardiff.
He is currently a member of Cork School of Music Symphony Orchestra, Limerick Philharmonic Orchestra and the National Youth Orchestra of Ireland.
Jacob is an enthusiastic chorister who is a member of the Irish Youth Choir, and various other local choirs including the newly formed Sagittarius which is based in St. Mary’s Cathedral.
He is looking forward to sharing his love and enthusiasm of the Double Bass with all his students!
