“I wholeheartedly endorse Tammy Sorenson’s VoiceBio Sound and Healing Therapy prophetic psalmist ministry. It truly enhances and supports the Kingdom Reality of Romans 8:2: “for the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.” As believers in Christ Jesus we’ve been free all along! Tammy really is, to quote from her book “Was I Not Listening or Did Someone Not Tell Me – The Journey of a Psalmist” “an oasis and a shelter for many who are thirsty for what only His presence can bring.”

In her home recording studio, Tammy conducted my VoiceBio session which I had scheduled. As she sat at the keyboard and briefly prayed, the personal music portion of ministry began cascading as waterfalls of Spirit-led healing grace from her heart and hands and voice. Spiritual walls of sludge began dislodging from my soul and falling away. A revelation of Abba God’s goodness and unconditional love began exposing the deceptive lies of the enemy I had accepted as a believer for many years. Lies in the form of word curses had served to malnourish my life and sustained an orphan spirit mentality, keeping me hidden in shadows of shame and rejection. Revelatory insight from Holy Spirit found in Scripture is continuing to guard my heart from the voice of the enemy and enforce the Biblical truth of my real identity in Christ Jesus. Listening to the frequencies of Heaven recorded during that session as well as on Tammy’s cd’s brings a balsam to my soul as my heart yearns to worship the Lord in spirit and truth.

Praising Jesus for the sound expressions and creative arts of psalmist Tammy Sorenson!”

“To anyone who loves to incorporate music with prophetic intercession, you’ve got to experience Tammy Sorenson. When she sits down and begins to play and sing she becomes an extenstion of the voice of God. Her VoiceBio’s are amazing and a tangible way to see healing through music. I’d highly recommend anyone to check out her ministry!”

I received this awesome letter of testimony in the mail this week (April 2016)! Abundantly blessed and thankful!

Dear Tammy,
I received my CD order and the gift of your extra CDs, which I gave as I felt led throughout my trip to France and Russia. I have heard from everyone that has listened to them, testimony of God’s presence released, re-aligning and healing their spirits, restoring atmospheres, bringing them much needed peace and drawing them closer to the heart of God for them. I have kept your ‘Joy Overflowing’ for myself and love the touches of Heaven it releases. With much thanks –

Highly recommend Tammy’s newest cd, Joy Overflowing, and A Spontaneous Christmas. Actually, I would recommend all of Tammy’s cds. They play all night in my home as I have them on my ipod and it just goes.

A dear friend shared an awesome testimony blessing yesterday with me. She & her friend went to a conference together & shared a room. My friend has ALL of my Sound Expressions Sound & Healing Therapy CDs on her computer & iPod, of which she played them throughout the night (as do we at our house). She also played them during their breaks. Her friend, who had been having difficulty sleeping, getting up several times every night, was able to sleep soundly through the night for the first time in months! Holy Spirit used the music – the tunings, frequencies, settings, keys, & Holy Spirit intention through spontaneously recorded pieces to bless this dear woman, as well as my sweet friend, with peaceful sleep – true rest – all glory to Whom all glory is due! Thank You Father for the music You are creating on behalf of others through Sound Expressions – me, Your humble vessel!

“I absolutely know that Holy Spirit is all over this. At our Q2C Annual Gathering this past weekend, there was a demonstration time of activating Holy Spirit led intercession over one of our attending members. Nothing was verbally shared about what was being battled in the physical body, nor did I know the individual. The individual and the group surrounding was way across the room where I could not directly observe what was transpiring. I therefore asked Holy Spirit what key I was to be His vessel through at the keyboard, settings, etc. (the tuning was already A 444 Hz) and quickly received, “You haven’t played in the key of ‘F’ yet.” So ‘F’ it was throughout the intercession time. At the end of the evening I inquired about specifics, only wanting to know from a sound & healing therapy perspective. The key of ‘F’ it was to the ‘nth’ detail of what was manifesting as the battle. Holy Spirit is incredibly amazing and wisdom Himself. We only need to listen for His leading and then follow. There will be numerous opportunities for this creative path in the new season we have entered. All glory to the Creator and Healer alone!”

“My name is Melanie Waters, and I am a speech language pathologist in Alabama, where I have a small private practice. I work with students who have autism, dyslexia, speech/communication issues and auditory processing disorder.

Like you, I have been struck by the bug about sound. A few years ago when my pastor preached about God speaking the world into existence, I started thinking about the sound waves that must have come from Yahweh…the frequencies!… Then I heard a testimony from a mom of an autistic child from New Zealand who attended a worship seminar where they talked about healing frequencies (it was Ray Hughes, but I had never heard of him at that time). When the mom returned to NZ, she asked God to show her the frequency to heal autism…everything she found in that frequency was new age so she asked God to sing over her child. One night her child told her a man was singing in his room and she told him to get up in his lap like he did with his grandpa. The child slept all night which was quite unusual, and over the course of the year, gradually lost all his autistic characteristics!

The next step in my journey involved working with a child who was adopted from a Russian orphanage. After I read an article called ‘Trauma and the Post-institutionalized Child’ from giftfromwithin.org (a group that deals with PTSD in different populations), I started thinking about how our bodies “hear” through vibrations of sounds , aka ‘bone conduction’, in our bones; therefore, a lot of meaningless noise can actually make us physically uncomfortable. If a child is in an environment like an orphanage where there is a lot of talking but none of it is directed to the child, it’s more comfortable for the brain to “turn off” the sounds. That’s when an auditory processing disorder begins to occur. The ears can hear, but the brain doesn’t quickly process the information.

I found it interesting in your article that 528 Hz was the healing frequency – I think I remember that correctly. Many children I work with who have an auditory processing weakness don’t really hear 500 Hz well. I provide a computer program called Fast ForWord (from Scientific Learning); it’s based on the premise of neuroplasticity, i.e.the brain’s ability to be rewired. One of the exercises trains the brain to hear the sequence of sounds, with the primary frequencies presented being 500 Hz, 1000 Hz, and 2000 Hz. It often takes much longer for the students to complete the 500 Hz level.

It’s also interesting to me that researchers now say the premise of dyslexia is based in the way the brain processes sounds of the language.

One of my autistic students, a 10-year-old boy who was adopted from Guatemala, recently got your CD “Free to Be” after I recommended it to his parents. The mom texted me the night they got it and said the little boy got a huge smile on his face and started jumping up and down saying, “That’s my music!” when they first played it. The next morning, he turned on the CD on his way to the bathroom. This child is not an animated boy so his reaction was quite something.

Thank you for sharing your passion with others and for listening to and obeying Holy Spirit to get the music out to others! Blessings.”

“I had the pleasure of Tammy leading the 2nd service at Resurrection Lutheran Church in Monticello. I truly mean pleasure, as your music has touched me and I’ve felt the healing power of the Holy Spirit for sinus and breathing issues. Immediately after the service I purchased 3 of your CD’s: Into Me See, Alignment, & WaterFalls. It was hard to choose but were some that your beautiful daughter and handsome son suggested as top sellers, etc.”

“Heavenly Father has used Tammy’s hands to open a pathway of His goodness and heart in words on paper. This book is a testimony of His faithfulness in all circumstances. We make wrong turns, miss the mark and get in a mess but through it all Holy Spirit gives direction. Answers don’t come overnight but come as a process of listening and obeying. Tammy has shared the pitfalls and the triumphs. I recommend reading “Was I Not Listening OR Did Someone Not Tell Me?”  from cover to cover. The Prelude sets the tone and it continues on. There is hope and victory in Jesus when walking His path. Be encouraged by one woman’s (family’s) continued walk with Him. The journey continues.”

“Hi Tammy,
I wanted to message you to share with you how thankful my husband and I am for your music. We have boughten many of your songs and albums, but had initially been given your album “free to be his glory” from a family member. That album has been such a blessing to us for many reasons. Since becoming pregnant in October we often played our son that album, in preparation for his arrival. It has been truly an amazing gift to see and sense his reaction to each song. Many times he has even moved closer to where the music is being projected from. Throughout my pregnancy I have attempted to play other songs/cd’s but have yet to receive a similar response! We are so thankful to have discovered your music for us and our son! Thank you for sharing your beautiful gift!
Love and blessings,”

“Finished reading your excellent book. It convicted me, but also moved me to draw closer to Jesus & seriously seek Him; availing myself to His purposes for me. Bless you for writing it. I am passing it on to my prayer partner, & praying about giving it to my granddaughter. Being the musician she is, hoping she finds the technical parts interesting, but also praying for a greater spiritual awakening to the concepts behind them.””

“Your music is now speaking what you would hear in a Throne Room! Yes, including this email brings new reality, Light to The Tree of Life and communion. How Did We Get Here 🙂 A Jet Fighter Plane! Yes, cds titles and tracts have opened up in a great way like right now. Salt and Light, and the track names have a whole new meaning. As you know. What a power shift, its almost not fair 🙂 Very effective melting power, checkmate!”

“Tammy is a gifted prophetic psalmist. In that gifting the Lord has taught her to listen to Holy Spirit’s voice, study to be approved through knowledge with experience; she has been honed as a master craftsman in the art of sound and frequencies of Heaven.

These sounds and frequencies penetrate into the cells of your body and prepare you or Holy Spirit to illuminate the Life of Elohiym, the Creator, into all areas of your life.

You feel alive again. You feel as if your cells are replenished. The truth is, as these sound frequencies are released into the atmosphere of your home, there is an electricity-type feel of aliveness that wasn’t there before. Hearing the Lord’s voice with more clarity is an effect of the sound frequencies. Life, Life, Life.”

“I would encourage anyone who has any type of a neurological disorder to sincerely consider downloading or ordering Tammy’s cd’s. I suffer from a rare disorder called Arnold’s Chiari Malformation 1 Syndrome. I started listening to the “Alignment” cd and was so amazed at how my body began responding to the beautiful music that I was listening to! I actually could feel the tension leave my body and when I got up to walk I had less spasticity in my legs and had regained a certain amount of balance back. Tammy’s “Wave” cd is so relaxing for my whole body, also. Thank you, Tammy for such beautiful relaxing and healing music. I can’t wait to get more of your cd’s!”

I spent Tuesday, June 3, doing VoiceBios and psalming sessions in Sauk Centre, MN. What an amazing day in His presence! I finished the DVD’s for each session, and am so very blessed and excited to share copies with each participant! My dear friend, Cheryl Rusch, who hosted Tuesdays sessions, had this to share about her experience:

“Spent a wonderful day with Tammy Sorenson and other friends doing VoiceBios. It was awesome. Each of us did an individual session and then met together at the end. The Lord confirmed some things to me again while Tammy psalmed. I so enjoy the music that Tammy has produced with the leading of the Lord.”

Cheryl Rusch
Sauk Centre, MN

“Tammy’s unique and powerful gifting in music and sound therapy have allowed me to experience in a deep and meaningful way, the empowering confirmation of the Lord’s leading, as I step forward to follow Him in a new direction in my life. The presence, love, and healing power of God was manifested to me through the inspired and skillfully presented “sound expressions,” spontaneously composed and performed by Tammy. It was an awesome (and awe-filled) experience.  

It was incredible for me to learn that my voice alone, when analyzed by a highly trained technician and a sophisticated computer program, could reveal such accurate insights into my physical and emotional health. The VoiceBio picked out voice frequency deficiencies and abnormalities which accurately identified previously diagnosed physical illnesses and limitations, along with some others that were until that point unknown. Tammy offers a totally unique experience for her clients by spontaneously composing a therapeutic, frequency rich personal “song,” to begin the healing process for the deficient frequencies. It was a beautiful, calming, relaxing “one of a kind” experience. Thank you Tammy!”

“Tammy Sorenson lives and breathes creativity. It pours out of her in passionate worship as her fingers dance on the keyboard and she sings new songs unto the Lord. I love the name of her ministry, The Arts Expressed, not only because she does it so well, but also because God’s heart is calling forth artists to a greater freedom and effectiveness in ministry. I believe this is the season for artists to be released into creative dimensions never before expressed, and Tammy has the heart and skills to help lead them there. She is an instrument in His hands for such a time as this, and we are blessed to experience her art, whether in live worship, CDs, or visual design.”

“It was a privilege to have Tammy Sorenson come to our church resently and do psalming and training with our worship leader.  Since that time together, I have seen a new release and freedom in our leader.  Also, many in our church enjoy the beautiful CDs, Grace for the Journey, The Journey, and Free to Be His Glory.  I have personally enjoyed more than one spiritual journey with Tammy as we’ve soaked in the revelation of His Love. Tammy is a woman who has much insight into sound frequencies, music, and the spirit realm.  You would be blessed to journey with her!”

“I became acquainted with Tammy Sorenson through a friend (whom I have known for 40 years).  She had come to know Tammy through conferences at which Tammy led worship and played during ministry time.  My friend also informed me of Tammy’s piano studio at The Arts Expressed and told me about this equipping center.  I had been to Ray Hughes’ Seven Day Intensive in Tennessee in 2005, and I knew that worship, praise and moving in the Spirit was expressed through all the arts.  As a result, I was very excited to hear about how The Arts Expressed had the same beliefs.  

I need to give some of my background to explain how I came to take lesson at Tammy’s studio.  I was an elementary teacher for 36 years retiring from full time teaching in May of 2007.  I had minored in Music and continued to play the piano taking lessons from different teachers.  I had taught Music in a school part-time for a year and played on worship teams in churches for some years.  In October, 2010, a door opened, and I began teaching piano in my home studio.  More students were referred to me, and I began reading piano pedagogy books, joined the Minnesota Music Teachers Association, the Alexandria Area Music Teachers Association and subscribed to the Clavier Companion.  I looked into certification by the Minnesota Music Teachers Association and learned that I would need to study piano for college credit.  When I looked into this (emailing Dr. Wilhite at St. Cloud State University), I was informed that piano lessons were not offered during the summer.  After retreating with the Lord and praying and looking at my schedule  (part-time teaching at the public school, teaching piano students, volunteer work, family), I realized it was not going to work to commute to St. Cloud from Long Prairie during the school year. 

I knew then that I would contact Tammy about studying piano with her.  I told her that I wanted to become a better piano teacher, a more skillful pianist, and understand and move in the Spirit as I played.  She told me she could help me, and so I began one hour lessons twice a month from June – September, 2012.  My expectations were met and exceeded.

Every time that we met, there was a focus: scales, praise, insights into sound, information that she had gleaned from her extensive study of the Word of God, books she referred to (i.e. HIDDEN MESSAGES IN WATER,  THE OPEN DOOR), speakers (David Van Koevering), articles from Elijah List and other sources.

Not only that, but I learned that she had been a member of the Minnesota Music Teachers Association for a number of years, had participated in their contests, and had been a judge for them.  As a result, she knew exactly what would be expected of my students who would be participating at contests.  Since she had taught piano students for many years, she was able to give me very practical, informative advice.

At every lesson, I was challenged in a very positive, encouraging and uplifting way.  There were numerous times that I realized that I had seen something in a new way or added to my prior knowledge.  I came to realize that all major and minor scales must be learned and become part of me.  The scales all have different frequencies therefore, I must have them all ready for when God says play in _____ (a certain key).  I learned that worship and psalming are not the same thing. I thought I understood what  flowing in the Spirit meant, but my understanding has expanded.  I now know what is required for healing and deliverance to come through my playing.  Not only did Tammy give me skills, but she demonstrated this to me.

Tammy is a lover of the Lord, a teacher, a psalmist…and so much more.  For the music that comes out of  her is coming from who God has made her to be.  She brought me into the realm of eternity.

One additional note: while playing Tammy’s CD, “Grace for the Journey,” I was praying, listening to the Lord, waiting on Him, when a specific individual came to mind.  The verses from Psalm 139 about being “fearfully and wonderfully made” followed, and I began to pray them over the individual. I had not looked at the titles of any of the music on the CD. It wasn’t until my next lesson when I was sharing this with Tammy that she said, “Fearfully and Wonderfully Made,” was one of the song titles on the very CD I had been listening to! God is amazing, and that which He wanted me to pray came through the music He had given Tammy!  WOW!

I left every lesson with new understanding, revelation, as well as practical skills to use with my students. These skills were demonstrated and applied to what had been assigned.”

“Driving home from another refreshing night at The Arts Expressed, I received a fresh revelation…  And I am so thankful that the Lord has led me to the ministry at The Arts Expressed.  For those of you who are unfamiliar, look up their website.  It is an equipping ministry to learn our God given gifts and learn to glorify Him by using and operating in those gifts.  I have been taking a Parenting a Child’s Heart class, which has been a-mazing.  I have been learning God’s perspective on raising up my children…and it is sooooo good!  I also have been inspired to tap back into the artistic gifts that I have been given.  It’s been so awesome to get that I have these gifts for a reason.  I hadn’t picked up a sketch pad in YEARS, I guess I didn’t see the point…and now the Lord is teaching me to use art to bless and speak to others. So, I have entered a new and exciting season in my journey…can’t wait to continue to share what He is doing!  Blessings!!!”

‘The Arts Expressed has been such a blessing to my family and me. My 4 year old has been loving piano lessons, and I’m excited to see her grow and nurture her gifts through the excellent teaching she is receiving there. I have grown and learned so much through the Parenting a Child’s Heart class. God is teaching me that I need so much more than just a few basic tips on how to raise my children. I need to rely on Him fully, and allow His Spirit to reign in me and in our home. The coffee house concerts/events have also been such a blessing. It is truly amazing to experience people’s gifts through their music, art, dance, poetry, etc. It has stirred something in me; a desire to rekindle my artistic talents and use them to glorify the Lord. This is huge, because I never really knew how I could do that…so I just sort of gave up on my art work. God’s presence truly resides at The Arts Expressed. I hope that more and more people will come and be blown away by what God is doing there.’

“I was searching for best the activity for my very active 4 and 6 year old. I was looking for a piano/music teacher and my husband suggested I check out “The Arts Expressed” since he had heard great things about it. I went to their website and was intrigued. I was a little doubtful that each child would last the 30 minute private lesson or do well in a group lesson but I thought I would at least call and see what I could find out. When I called and spoke with Tammy she was very flexible by making the lesson fit to how my boys would learn. We have been going to Tammy for 3 months now and I have been so impressed on how Tammy understands, relates to, and sees the gifts in my children that they have been given. There are many wonderful things that are developing for my children but the one thing that I must share is that “The Arts Expressed” has created an AWESOME environment where my children are not judged, they are not labeled, and they are free to express themselves with music. I see how happy they are and this experience is opening their little minds to so many awesome things! I am extremely excited to see how they continue to do awesome things in their class!

Tammy also instructs a parenting course that I am currently taking. Since taking this course, I have been able to use what we discuss to help my parenting skills with my children. This class has been such a valuable resource for me and this class has created and opened so many opportunities for me as a parent; particularly how I view things in my life in a much more positive way!  The same environment exists for this class too. No judging and everyone is supportive and understanding.  After each class, I feel completely recharged and my cup is definitely overflowing with JOY!”

“Dear Jaran Family Ministries,

We want to say thank you for the ministry that you have provided over the last few years at Evangelist Crusaders Church. Whether it has been through the Arts Express’d, the sharing of your musical talents, the expression of testimony, exhortation, and prayer, or by the preaching of the Word, we have truly been blessed.

I remember hearing many wonderful comments from the congregation about the Arts Express’d ministry. Young and old alike found it to be a beautiful experience. Some were simply blessed by the relaxed atmosphere of the evening basking in the presence of the Lord, while others were grateful to have a chance to tap into their artistic gifts. The younger children were blessed also by having the chance to express themselves through creative means. The entire evening was a success.

We repeatedly use your “Spontaneous Expressions” worship CD as a background for our weekly evening prayer service. It is such an anointed CD. Amazingly, each night we use it, the melodies and expressions seem to fall right in line with how the Lord is directing the flow of the prayer. I also must mention how grateful we are when you visit us sharing either in word or by joining in freely with our musicians and sharing your musical gifting. You always add that added extra to our worship experience. The sweet spirit in which you minister brings the warmth of fellowship.

We pray that as you enter into a new season of your ministry that God will continue to use you mightily for his glory, opening up many more venues in which you will be able to minister. We hope this letter can serve not only as a word of encouragement to you but also as a letter of recommendation from us on behalf of your ministry. Thanks again and may God’s best be yours.”

Sincerely,
Pastor David L. Fronsoe, Senior Pastor
Evangelist Crusaders Church, Minneapolis. MN

“Tammy,
We want to thank you for investing your time into the Women’s Retreat. It’s evident it’s your heart and passion to worship Him with excellence, and to lead others into that place of intimacy. Those are eternal values that do make an eternal difference in this earthly realm and in the heavenly realm! Many blessings always to you and your family! Love in Christ Jesus.”

“Tammy Sorenson’s book, No More Orphans!, will speak to many who are called to train others in kingdom concepts. Tammy has a heart to teach teachers and leaders to prepare the next generation to march forward as the army of the Most High God, and this book is an excellent manual to facilitate that. Tammy has first-hand experience with adoption, as she and her husband Kevan, have adopted three children from an orphanage in Guatemala.

I enjoyed the revelation from this gifted woman as I read about treasures and jewels, which are us! As a teacher myself, I especially enjoyed the practical tools which the book offers in the last section. The teaching on the Seven Mountains is my personal favorite section, as it gives not only explanations about each mountain, but offers excellent prayers of repentance, something which touches heaven and brings change to a needy world.

The entire Sorenson family is a family of worshippers. Kevan, Tammy, and their three biological children, Jaran, Jadan, and Jessa are talented musicians. They are not just typical worshippers with their music, but they are aware of the spiritual influence of the sound of their instruments and voices. They know they are releasing God’s glory and revelation as they worship. Their three adopted children, Jenna, Jocilyn, and Josiah, worship in art, poetry, and the Word. All of them have learned to prophesy in numerous ways in art and creativity. It has been my privilege to spend time with them and see their hearts for the Lord. Tammy wants to influence others to worship in any way possible, and that is reflected in her own children and in her enthusiasm to bring heaven to earth.

“Jaran Family Ministries has been a blessing to our church family and our community. Their devotion to God and their desire to live their faith is evident. Their worship is pure and their lives bring glory to God. We are thankful to have them as friends and as co-laborers in building the Kingdom of God together.”

Dan & Linda Gassler, Pastors
A Glorious Church, Monticello, MN

“The Sorenson family has something truly amazing to offer. Their love for God and their devotion to Him is evident in every contact I’ve had with them. If you’re looking for a ministry team that can usher in God’s presence, look no further. Each member of their family – children ages 11 to 19 – has a gift to prophesy, paint and draw, pray, read passages from the Bible, or play an instrument. Their parents, Kevan and Tammy have trained their children to use these gifts to bring God glory – not themselves. Whether it be a conference session or a church service, the Sorensons encourage people of all ages to participate. Art, dance, the waving of flags, and the playing of hand held instruments such as wood blocks and maracas are methods used to intentionally involve the kids and made them feel more at home. After all, adults aren’t the only ones that need God’s presence – kids need it, too. I highly recommend the Sorensons and their ministry, Jaran Family Ministries/The Arts Express’d, to anyone that my be considering having them.”
