We have information that a well-known instrument professor was fired by the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music last October after allegations of misconduct with female students and applicants. One auditioner was aged 16 at the time.
The teacher was also suspended from a New York institution, while continuing to teach elsewhere.
We have withheld his name because no criminal charges were brought.
However, it seems that the Berkelee College’s practise of sacking predatory teachers without a stain on their record may be more prevalent in US conservatories than previously suspected.

UPDATE: The professor is named.
