Melbourne-based music teacher charged with sexually abusing young girls

A Saxophone teacher has been charged with indecently assaulting four young girls inside his home as he gave them music lessons.

A former Scotch College music teacher has been charged with indecently assaulting four young girls as he gave them saxophone lessons at his home.
According to The Age, Yi Yang, or Allan Yang, indicated yesterday that he’d plead guilty to 16 charges of indecent assault on four girls over seven years 2006 to 2013.
The 51-year-old was running a business called the Melbourne Music Academy from his home in Kew between 2014 and 2015, and was confirmed to have been working at Scotch College between 2002 and 2009 – years which include his sexual crimes.
According to police documents, he touched, massaged and kissed young girls in his Kew home. He is also accused of touching the private parts of four girls, either under or over their clothes.
An investigation into Yang was launched by child abuse detectives last year. He was initially charged with four counts of committing an indecent act with a child under 16.
The Age reports that his social media accounts promote his 2013 performance in China as "the first-ever saxophonist to perform saxophone concerto with the Chinese National Symphony".
