The Singing Elf

The Singing Elf is vocal tutor Rebecca McGarvie (nee Burns) - she leads singing with groups across North East England.

Rebecca’s greatest passion is helping people to find joy through singing with others. She believes that singing is a lifelong journey; it’s never too early or too late to start and there’s no such thing as ‘I can’t sing’ – everyone has a voice, some people just need a little more help to find it! Known for her upbeat, energetic and relaxed style, even the shyest of voices can soar with her help.

Vocal training for Rebecca began aged 11 at her local church choir in West Rainton; she progressed to singing with Durham County Youth Choir before studying to achieve ABRSM Grade 8 Singing. After a decade of performance, she refocused on helping others to find their voice and trained in Community Musicianship with The Sage Gateshead.

Since then Rebecca has worked with hundreds of singers of all ages, abilities and backgrounds across the North East.  As the founder of Darlington Arts Academy she created an award winning youth theatre and kick started community choirs within the town.

Following the closure of the Academy, Rebecca took a break from singing and moved to Durham. She’s excited to be back working with new groups and spreading her love of singing through her new business The Singing Elf.
