About Me

Hello, my name is Gregg Cannady. I received a B.A. in Music Education from Colorado State University, a M.A. in Music Education from the University of Wyoming and a D.M.A. in Choral Conducting and Literature from the University of Colorado.


I have conducted numerous high school choirs as well as the University of Colorado Women's Ensemble and University Singers. I have also has worked in North Carolina as Director of Choral Activities and Applied Voice at Mount Olive College and have been the Chorus Master for the Boulder Bach Festival. Choral ensembles under my direction have performed at several state and national conferences and have toured extensively in the United States, China, Italy and Germany.


I developed a music education curriculum using digital applications such as Ableton 9, PUSH, AudioCubes and the music composition software Sibelius. I have presented workshops to music educators at state and national music conferences. It is the application of digital music production and technology combined with traditional, classical and world music that we hope to develop at STEM School Highlands Ranch.  


I am currently working on STEM School Collaboration and Concept Development and the MARS Team. We hope to make a difference by supporting engaged learning, STEM-infused collaborations, industry partnerships and connecting teachers in real-time synchronous learning. We believe that teachers are the experts who facilitate the infinite potential of students collaborating together to solve problems and increase learning.


THE SYNK is a synchronous learning environment that we have developed at STEM School Highlands Ranch. Our approach is based upon an online connection that goes well beyond traditional online courses. We connect learners in real time, solving problems together using a STEM-infused experiential problem-based learning approach supported by technologies that serve this two-way collaboration.


In this environment, the walls that confine traditional schools are eliminated. Students are able to collaborate in real time with infinite learning partners. We are working to transform learning by breaking down barriers and allowing learning to occur anywhere, anytime, and with anyone.
