Andrew Anderson was born in 1971 in Melbourne, Australia, where he studied composition with Rodney Ford, violin with Barbara O'Reilly, and piano with Aarvon McFadden.
He has been the recipient of two Masterworks prizes (ERMmedia, USA) for composition, resulting in recordings of his works by the Czech Philharmonic and the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra.
Anderson has written several choral works for the Christian liturgy, this writing being informed by engagements with parish choirs in both the USA and the UK, as well as private tuition in singing with Nigel Wickens (Cambridge, UK). He also has an interest in encouraging community engagement in music performance, being the founder of the University of Melbourne Artists Register.
