What is the relationship between Ms Rachel and Jules? What happened to them?


Rachel Griffin hails from Biddeford, Maine, growing up in Sanford, Maine. She honed her passion for theatre at Sanford High School before pursuing further education at the University of Southern Maine. Her journey led her to New York, where she obtained a master’s degree in music education from New York University, setting the stage for her impactful career as a music teacher in a New York City public preschool.


Rachel’s YouTube journey began in 2019, a collaborative effort with her husband, the esteemed Broadway music director and composer, Aron Accurso. The catalyst for their channel, named Ms Rachel, was their son’s speech delay. Rachel, driven by the lack of suitable resources, embarked on creating “Songs for Littles,” a YouTube series that blends cherished children’s songs with original compositions, catering to toddlers and infants.

This charming channel, born out of Rachel’s personal experiences, gained significant traction, especially during the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic. By 2023, “Songs for Littles” has amassed over three million subscribers. It’s not just a one-person show; Rachel collaborates with a diverse and talented team, including notable figures like Keisha Gilles, Alexa Smith, Frida Matute, Beth Jean, and Jules Hoffman.

Rachel’s impact extends beyond YouTube, as she became a TikTok sensation with over two and a half million followers. However, she faced a momentary break, citing mental health concerns.

This hiatus, in part, was linked to a controversy involving her co-star Jules Hoffman’s use of they/them pronouns, a topic sparking parental backlash. Rachel’s resilience led her back to TikTok, and her channel’s rising popularity caught the attention of the Creative Artists Agency, further solidifying her influential presence.
