Welcome to Butterfly Music

It's a real pleasure to have the chance to share my music with you in this way. It's now been eighteen years since Butterfly Music began with the launch of the CD "These Hands" back on December 6th, 2000. During that year I worked with the students at St Joseph's Primary School, Moorebank, on recording a CD of new religious songs for children. I remember saying to the children of the "These Hands" choir one day, in about June of that year, that I hoped that one day children in Catholic Schools all around Australia would be singing "These Hands". Well now many of them do, as well as lots of children in New Zealand, the United States and Canada too, and to think about that makes me feel very thankful for the opportunities given to me by God.

Concerts

Since 2001, Andrew has regularly toured schools and parishes around Australia, New Zealand and in more recent times, North America. His concerts and workshops are celebrations of faith and fun through singing, actions and a bit of comedy as well. Children are very much encouraged to be active participants, rather than spectators. Andrew’s workshops and concerts are easy to prepare and can be done purely on the day itself. More about Concerts
