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.
