Violin - Keyboard - Choral Conducting
Currently undertaking the Bachelors of Music Performance programme at the Royal Irish Academy of Music, Callum Jeacle began his studies there in 2018 on Violin with Sarah Sew and Maeve Broderick.
Callum’s wide range of musical interests has led him to perform concerts all over Ireland and abroad as a choral, orchestral and chamber musician. As a result, he has worked with internationally-renowned conductors such as Gerhard Markson, Lilla Gábor, David Brophy, and Gavin Moloney. In addition to regularly performing from the western classical canon, he has been part of a number of exciting contemporary music projects which have included the Irish première of the opera Banished by Stephen McNeff, and multiple world premières of orchestral and choral works as both a violinist and a singer.
Callum is also a passionate music educator. Since 2018, he has been part of the music team of Dublin Youth Choirs where he has assisted Director Lynsey Callaghan for the DYC Junior and Training choirs. In the same year, he joined the panel of educators for Music Generation – Ireland’s National Music Education Programme and provides weekly instrumental tuition. Callum was enabled to further his pedagogical studies upon becoming a recipient of the inaugural Colum Ó’Cléirigh Memorial Scholarship awarded by Kodály Ireland in 2019 and has since applied Kodály-inspired principles to his teaching.
Callum now studies Choral Conducting for his degree at the Royal Irish Academy of Music and is exploring his interest in composing, having been mentored by Irish Composer Laura Shiels as part of the DYC Young Composers Programme.
