Jean-Baptiste Buterne was born in Toulouse. His father was an organist.
Jean-Baptiste was appointed an organist at Saint-Étienne-du-Mont in Paris in 1674. He left this position in 1726 and was replaced by Claude-Nicolas Ingrain.
He was appointed organist of the Chapelle royale in 1678, quarter of April, at the same time as Lebègue, Thomelin and Nivers, a position he held until 1702. He was succeeded by Garnier, the organist from Saint-Louis-des-Invalides.
His son, Charles Buterne, a squire, harpsichord master of the Duchess of Burgundy and organist, left behind some compositions and a method of learning music.
