Duncan McTier, an internationally known double-bass player and teacher, pleaded guilty today to two counts of indecent assault and one of attempted indecent assault against young women.
The women were students of the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) in Manchester and Purcell school in Hertfordshire. the offences took place in the 1980s and 1990s. More here.
McTier, 59, resigned today from his post at the Royal Academy of Music, from which he has been suspended since May.
UPDATE: He was given a three-month jail sentence suspended for two years and ordered to do 240 hours of unpaid work.
The case arises from a police investigation triggered by the conviction of Mike Brewer of offences at Chetham’s School of Music and the RNCM.
Further cases are pending.
