After being charged with three counts of sexual assault earlier this year, Coquitlam piano teacher Dmytro (also known as Dmitri) Kubyshkin has been charged with seven additional counts of sexual assault involving former students.

Kubyshkin was a piano teacher in private homes for more than 20 years and current allegations stretch back to 1998.

The latest charges against Kubyshkin were laid on May 18, 2018, and he has been released on a number of new conditions including:

  • Not being allowed to teach piano to students under the age of 18
  • Not being allowed to be alone with anyone under 18
  • His students must be fully aware of the charges against him

The investigation is still open and in order to further the investigation, Coquitlam RCMP investigators are very interested in speaking to anyone who believes they may have been a victim.

His current company name is “DM Piano School.”

In order to further the investigation, police said they have released a photo of Kubyshkin who they describe as Caucasian with white/blonde hair, blue eyes, and a moustache.

In light of the most recent charges, Coquitlam RCMP are asking anyone who has been a victim of a crime involving Kubyshkin – or knows someone who has – to call the Coquitlam RCMP non-emergency number at 604-945-1550.
