Since 1951, Ms. Wang has been a prominent composer who has further excelled as a freelance musician. Initially exposed to Western music after her parents brought it home to her native country of China, she discovered a passion for the piano, having been influenced by her mother, who played the piano in her spare time.

She has published several compositions, such as "East Wind for Flute and Piano," "Fantasy for Solo Organ," "Dazzling Jewels for High Voice and Piano," "Kapalua for Flute and Piano," "The Christmas Gift for Chorus and Keyboard/Orchestra." Likewise, she composed a ballet suite , "The Homeless Child." More recent works to Ms. Wang's credit include "Ocean Medley" in 2016, "Woodwind Octet" in 2018 and "A Child of Grace" in 2019.
Among the notable highlights of her career, Ms. Wang recalls writing the opera piece for "Lan Ying" as a crowning achievement. She notes that although the music process was quite difficult, it was also rewarding and gratifying. Likewise, Ms. Wang's composition "Fantasy for Solo Organ" was distributed across the globe by Calvert Johnson, a highly renowned organist.
