Private music teacher charged with raping teenage girl in NJ studio

JERSEY CITY — A private music teacher has been accused of sexually abusing a male student multiple times over a four-year period at his Jersey City studio.

The Hudson County District Attorney’s Office Special Victims Unit arrested 62-year-old David Musial on Thursday.

The assaults occurred when the victim was between 14 and 18 years old and ended this year at Musial’s music studio, according to Hudson County District Attorney Esther Suarez.

The Jersey City resident, who is also a music producer and composer, goes by the name “Professor David Musial” and runs SkyRoom Studio at 45 River Dr. S., according to his websites and social media accounts.

Musial was charged with first degree aggravated sexual assault, second degree sexual assault, third degree counts of aggravated criminal sexual interference and endangering the welfare of a child, and fourth degree criminal sexual contact.

He was being held in the Hudson County Jail pending his first court appearance.

The state filed a motion for detention, which is to be heard Thursday.

Suarez said anyone wanting to report a sex crime should call the Hudson County District Attorney’s Office Special Victims Unit (SVU) at 201-915-1234.
