Music with Mrs. Mauldin

September 8, 2020 | Becca Brasser

Dear First Grade Families,

Hello! My name is Aiko Mauldin, and I am the music teacher for the first grade. I am very excited to be working with your child this year!  In first grade, the students will receive 30 – minute music instruction twice a week. While we save the singing activities put away for now, we will work on community building through music! The students will move, create and explore through classical, folk and contemporary music. They will learn to read and write in simple musical notation, as well as to listen, analyze and perform. For more information, please read First Grade Music Note at Mustard Seed School 2020-21.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out at: [email protected]

Can’t wait to start making music with your child!

Becca Brasser

Teacher, Grade 1

Becca Brasser has been teaching first grade at Mustard Seed School since 2002. She’s passionate about teaching children to read, write, experiment, and take risks as they explore the world around them. Her own studies (including a Master of Arts degree from New Jersey City University) have given her expertise and experience in the area of literacy education.

Ms. Brasser especially enjoys taking her students on field trips all over the New York Metropolitan area, traveling on foot, subway, bus, commuter train, and ferry. Some favorite trips: the Hudson Hike, the New York Transit Museum, and the Central Park Zoo to study penguins.

Although she lives in the city, Ms. Brasser loves escaping to nature and finding it in her everyday life as well. She loves to explore rivers and lakes, woods and mountains with her husband Matt, their daughter, Annika, and son, Theo.
