His mother was also raised in Saskatchewan, and his father came to Canada from Hungary during the Depression. Still in his youth Lenz took piano lessons from Garth Beckett and later studied composition at the University of Saskatchewan.Lenz became a professional musician when he played keyboards and flute for the soft-rock bands Seals and Crofts and Loggins and Messina touring around the world, performing before large audiences, and recording.Lenz' involvement in children's issues stems partly from having seven children of his own, as well as being an arena which avoids "the conflict between what I believe about music and its sacred nature and dealing with what a lot of programing deals with, which sometimes could be the worst aspects of human nature." Lenz joined the Bahá'í Faith in 1969. Lenz has done music production work for over 100 programs for various categories of mass media including television series and information/news programming, feature films, movies of the week, documentaries, live to broadcast, and children's television productions for networks like the CBC, NBC, Nickelodeon, PAX TV, Discovery Channel, Scholastic-HBO, Showtime, and Nelvana / CBS as well as theatrical works. * Little Mosque on the Prairie (2007) * "Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye" (12 episodes, 2003-2005) * The Passion of the Christ (2004) * Goosebumps (TV series) * RoboCop: The Series * 13 years of the Hospital for Sick Children's Telethon * 7 years of YTV's Youth Achievement Awards * musical direction of A tribute to renowned author, Mordecai Richler * more than twenty separate television productions back to 1983.
