Through music studies, the students at Light and Life gain not only an academic understanding of music, but also a way to communicate the Ixil culture. Their band director, Juan Pérez Marroquín (Xhun), was the first teacher when Light & Life School began with one grade. This year he teaches 5th grade. Drawing from his training in theology and music at SETECA (Seminario Teológico Centroamericano), he created and directs the school band at Light & Life. As part of his seminary studies, Xhun also formed an Ixil choir that performed at SETECA.
