As the organist at Utrecht Cathedral, he became well-known for his improvisation abilities. From 1926 to 1954, he lectured in composition and music theory at the Amsterdam Conservatory while also teaching at the Institute for Catholic Church Music in Utrecht between 1930 and 1949. He was the director of the Utrecht Conservatory from 1937 to 1949 and subsequently switched to the same post at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, which he held until 1957. Between 1952 and 1962, he was appointed an Extraordinary Professor of the Catholic University of Nijmegen. Andriessen's oeuvre included, besides eight masses, a setting of the Te Deum, four symphonies, variations for orchestra, lieder for voice and orchestra, chamber music, sonatas for cello and for piano, and works for solo organ.
