The team behind Dots Music Camden

Madi Weland Solomon

Owner/Managing Director
Madi Weland SolomonMadi previously held corporate executive roles in large multi-national companies as a data specialist before deciding  to do something completely different. Seeking a more analogue second half of her professional career, she began to look for something that would provide a closer association with the local communities.  When she followed up on a news article announcing the pending retirement of Dot and Noel Fraser, she discovered her calling.

In addition to her corporate experience, Madi is also a musician. Her classical piano training began at the age of five in Japan where she was born. Along the way she picked up a guitar, a banjo, the ukulele and an Irish harp.  She was first chair percussion in the marching and concert band in her US high school and was the recipient of the Orion Award for Musical Achievement.  She plays jazz piano at home (Bill Evans, Kenny Barron, and Eric Reed among her idols), and the banjo (Bela Fleck and Earl Scruggs) and accordion with the Camden Americana band The Handlers. She is also Principal Consultant for ICP Net.  For her, music is a lifelong passion and acquiring Dots Music Shop was a way to keep the music alive for the next generations.
