Charlene Adzima


Suzuki-trained as a student and now as a teacher, Charlene Adzima has been playing violin for over 20 years. Through Irish dancing at a young age, she embraced Irish music and went on to study with All-Ireland fiddle champions Liz Carroll, Seamus Connolly and Oisin Mac Diarmada. Collecting the title of Senior Fiddle Champion at the 2005 Midwest Fleadh Cheoil (Irish music competition), Charlene has been warmly accepted into the Irish music community and is known for her pulsing rhythm and newly-composed tunes. Charlene has a teacher’s heart and loves to creatively find ways to teach anything from basic violin/viola fundamentals to soulful musicality.
