This is Mrs. Sorensen-Wang’s fifth year at Fremont Junior High and in Mesa Public Schools, and she is so excited to be teaching orchestra here!
Mrs. Sorensen-Wang fell in love with the violin at the age of five when she began taking violin lessons. Each week she would drive with her parents from her home town of Fremont, Nebraska to Omaha, and eventually added school orchestra, youth symphony, choir, band (she plays the drums) and marching band to her list of musical activities.
She received her Bachelor of Music Education degree from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln (Go Huskers!!!) and during her time in college she participated in the Honors Program, served as concertmaster of the University Symphony, Opera Orchestra, and Chamber Orchestra, played electric violin in a local rock band, and graduated with High Distinction at the end of her four years.
Mrs. Sorensen-Wang began her teaching career in the Millard Public Schools in Omaha, Nebraska where she taught 4th through 8th grade orchestra for three years. Omaha is a wonderful place to live, and her students were fantastic, but Mrs. Sorensen-Wang knew she wanted to be a better violinist as well as a better teacher, and she auditioned at Arizona State University for the Master’s degree program in Violin Performance.
During her time at ASU, Mrs. Sorensen-Wang served as the Teaching Assistant for her violin professor’s studio which gave her the opportunity to teach violin lessons to college students, served as concertmaster of the Symphony Orchestra, worked with some incredible teachers, collaborated with many inspirational musicians, and put in many many hours of practice!
Music has allowed Mrs. Sorensen-Wang to travel around the world. She has performed in Italy, Russia, Canada, and across the United States. She strives to engage students in focused music making and hopes that they will continue to participate in music for the rest of their lives!
