Friar Juan Caron taught singing lessons while playing the organ despite being very old and not speaking Nahuatl. Over time, the school became a royal academy where the singers graduated and went to sing all the churches of the Franciscans, which students from small towns attended. In the same school, Fray Pedro de Gante instituted the Department of Fine Arts, where images to decorate churches were created.
