Interview with Carly Fleming

Today’s guest for the #womensupportingwomen feature is Carly Fleming, my friend, and musician. When I think of “Winter Wonderland”, I think of walks in the snow and relaxing near a cozy fire with my blanket, hot chocolate, and some music.

Without further ado, let’s step in! 👇

Q: What is a personal favorite quote?

A: The lyrics from New Grass Revival’s Song “Do What You Gotta Do” I blast this when I have to do something that feels really scary and it ALWAYS helps get me through. I highly recommend people give it a listen!

Q: What is your favorite activity when you aren’t working?

A: I love playing the mandolin, violin, piano, and ukulele (we also have a guitar and banjo, but I leave those to my husband.) I also have spent an inordinate amount of time during the pandemic perfecting Overcooked 2.

Q: When did you create your business, and what inspired you to start this specific business venture?

A: Technically I began my music business in the early 2000s. I taught private lessons to cellists in elementary orchestras and had a quartet that would play weddings and events.

Q: Why was it important for you to create your business?

A: Teaching gives me energy and deep gratification for those I serve.

Q: If you could go back in time and give yourself any advice during the first year of your business, what would it be?

A: It’s ok to not be good at every aspect of your profession. We all have strengths and weaknesses and that is ok.

Q: What is your favorite part about working with/supporting your specific clients?

A: I specialize in teaching cello to adult musicians. I feel that it is a privilege to be trusted with their musical growth and I am always blown away by their commitment to the instrument.

Q: Where can our viewers find you?

A: You can find me on Instagram @Carlysdailycello. I am located in DeLand, FL so if you’re an adult in Central Florida looking for lessons, please contact me at CarlyCFleming@gmail.com

Q: What does confidence mean to you?

A: Acknowledging my strengths, while also recognizing when I need to ask for help. I used to think confidence meant pretending that I knew how to do something when I didn’t. Now I recognize that asking for help increases self-confidence.
