Teacher Tells Girl to Strip and Sing

(Tacoma, Washington) A 37-year-old music teacher formerly at Tacoma Community College, Kevin Gausepohl, has lost his job.

Gausepohl faces morality charges stemming from convincing a 17-year-old girl to disrobe and perform sex acts while singing. He said she would be able to reach lower octaves by singing naked and touching herself.

Gausepohl allegedly told a Gig Harbor High School student he was conducting a study on how sexual arousal affects vocal ranges. The girl, 17 at the time, was attending the college as part of the Running Start program.

She complied with some of his requests to strip naked or touch herself during private voice lessons at the college, court records show.

Other students told investigators Gausepohl approached them about being part of the study, court records show. They declined.

Gausepohl has denied any wrongdoing. When hired he indicated that he was interested in how sexual arousal affects vocal range.[More....]
