A 62-year-old Connecticut man who worked as an instructor at a Hicksville music school that his family operates was accused on Thursday of sexually abusing two female students during private lessons over the course of three years.

Nassau County police arrested Kenton Burt at Burt Music School on Newbridge Road Thursday without incident, police said.

Burt, who is from Kent, Connecticut, was charged with two counts of first-degree sexual abuse.

Police alleged that on numerous occasions from January 2012 and March of this year, Burt sexually abused two female students, between the ages of 9 and 14, during private lessons.

A police spokesman said one of Burt’s family members owns the school.

Police are continuing the investigation. Detectives ask anyone who feels they may have been victimized to call the Special Victims Squad at 516-573-4022.

Burt will be arraigned Friday at First District Court in Hempstead.
