Teacher, 61, had sex with teen and said hed learn from real woman court hears

A piano teacher at a private school "had sex with a teenage pupil and told him he was 'learning from a real woman'", a court has heard.

The alleged historic assault dates back to the 90s, when Fiona Carrier, now 61, was said to have had sex with the young teen at her home after giving a lesson.

She is said to have given the youngster, in his early teens, booze and food and then instigated kissing before sex. She denies any wrongdoing.

Carrier would "socialise" with her pupils, the court was told.

Prosecutor James Keeley said the complainant was in his early teens when he began taking piano lessons from her.

Oxford Crown Court heard how she kissed him during their first lesson and Carrier spoke about sexual matters.

The jury was told the pair were said to have had sex eight times.

The defendant denies multiple counts of indecent assault.

Mr Keeley said: “Lessons then progressed and were held at the defendant's home and when [he] was there, what the defendant would do [was] she would give him alcohol with an accompanying meal before forcing sexual interaction with him, ending up with [sex] in her bedroom and this happened on about eight occasions.

"Certainly he was an unwilling participant. He uses language, saying he thought he was being raped and after suffering and trying to come to terms with the consequences of this abuse for many years, eventually he decided to go to the police and tell them what had gone on."

It was alleged Carrier "pinned" the boy down and "encouraged" him to touch her after the first lesson.

She allegedly told him: "You'll not regret this, learning from a real woman."

The jurors were told Carrier was interviewed by detectives after the complainant – now a grown man – approached the police.

She claims the boy kissed her first and she "didn't see that coming" but had returned the kiss.

Mr Keeley summarised the interview: "There was another occasion when they were sexually close, kissed and had a fumble and touched each other."

Carrier, of Berkshire, denies indecent assault.

The trial continues.
