The Langley Schools Music Project is not so much a group as the name that served as an umbrella for a couple of super-obscure, privately pressed LPs by Canadian elementary school students in the mid-'70s. The recordings were supervised and arranged by Hans Fenger, a Vancouver musician who had taken a post teaching music in elementary schools in the rural area of Langley, British Columbia. Fenger took a then-radical (and still-radical) approach to music instruction that emphasized participation and pop songs the kids liked. Even more radically, he recorded his students on a couple of albums, pressed in extremely small quantities for performers, parents, classmates, and faculty (only 300 were pressed of the first LP). Recorded on two-track in a gym, these feature approximately 50-strong groups of elementary school children singing, usually together (there are occasional solo spotlights), pop/rock songs of the '60s and '70s like "Good Vibrations," "Band on the Run," and "Desperado." They were accompanied by minimal instrumentation, including cymbals, xylophones, metallophones, one open-tuned string of an electric bass, and Fenger's own acoustic rhythm guitar and piano.
