Brenda Kahn

Arts Education Coordinator | 303 440-7826 x111 | bkahn@thedairy.org

Brenda Kahn joined The Dairy Arts Center following over 20 years of teaching and music industry experience. Brenda started her career as a singer/songwriter with the release of her first album on an independent label (Comm3 Records) in 1990. She was one of the major singer/songwriters of the anti-folk movement in New York’s East Village, crossing genres of folk, jazz, and punk. Her second album was released on Columbia Records, which allowed her to tour the world in support of acts like Bob Dylan and Jeff Buckley. Over her career, she released seven albums of original music, played at major music festivals (Lilith Fair, SXSW, CMJ), and continues to perform and record today. In 2018 Brenda published a book of poetry about motherhood “Ode to Chores: the Good, the Bad, and the Laundry.”

In 2003, Brenda took a break from touring when her first son was born.  She fell in love with teaching working for a tutoring company in Center Valley, PA, helping students with reading and writing challenges. She expanded her teaching to offer creative writing workshops for middle school students and worked for two years as a support teacher in a 4th and 5th-grade special ed classroom at Harry S. Truman Elementary School.

In 2018, she moved with her husband and two sons to South Salem, NY where she taught middle and high-school-level English and History at Fusion Academy, a private school in White Plains, NY. Fusion Academy caters to students with learning differences, and Bren excelled at finding creative learning paths for students with special ed needs. In 2021, she was promoted to Director of Homework Cafe at Fusion, helping students to hone executive functioning skills and working with teachers to help them implement best practices for differentiating homework and instruction for their students.

In 2022 her family relocated to Boulder CO. She is thrilled to be working with the Dairy Arts Center as the Arts Education Coordinator connecting students throughout the region with exceptional arts experiences.
