Welcome from The Singing Elf

Hi, I’m Rebecca McGarvie, Director of The Singing Elf Social Enterprise! I’m a vocal tutor and event manager based near Durham in North East England. I run group singing workshops, courses and events for adults. I'm also the event organiser for Durham Big Sing.

I specialise in working with complete beginners; people who love to sing but aren't sure if they can! My upbeat sessions can’t help but put a smile on your face and will leave you uplifted and energised. You can hire me to work with your group, attend one of my one-off events or sing regularly with my community choir Unity.

Do what makes the heart sing?

The Singfulness Project

Find your happy and do what makes your heart sing!

Singfulness is a feeling – it’s how you feel when you’re doing something for the pure joy of it and the sense of calm you get from being in the moment. Singfulness encapsulates all the good stuff you get from singing your heart out but from doing whatever makes you happy. It’s that uplifting sensation of belting out a song when no one else can hear, the satisfaction of nailing it for the very first time, the friendships made from sharing your experiences and the brief escapism from the world around us.

We know that right now, lots of people in our community are going through difficult times for all sorts of reasons due to Coronavirus.  For some of us, our world may be lonely, for others it might be difficult to get a moments peace. But most of us aren’t able to do many of the things we would usually do to lift our spirits, connect with others and help us feel good. The Singfulness Project aims to offer much of what you might find at your local community centre and bring it straight to your home. You’ll get to choose the activities which make your heart sing, connect with others, share your achievements and be part of a community.
