    A Visitacion Valley Middle School band teacher was arrested  earlier this week and has been charged with committing lewd and lascivious acts on three students between 2006 and 2009, authorities said.

          Terry Braye, a 60-year-old San Francisco man, was arrested Monday.  Police investigators obtained information that a teacher at the middle school  may have engaged in inappropriate activities with students and the arrest  followed a "very extensive investigation," police Officer Samson Chan said.
    "During that investigation, three victims came forward and we  determined these acts occurred from 2006 to 2009 on school grounds," Chan said.
    Braye is accused of committing lewd and lascivious acts on three  different students, girls ages 11 to 13, during school hours, Chan said.
    The girls have all since graduated from the school, he said. The  investigation began "very recently" when one of the girls told a counselor, who then told police, Chan said.
    Braye had allegedly tried to contact the girls over the Internet  after they graduated, according to Chan.
     District attorney's spokesman Brian Buckelew said tonight Braye  has been charged with three counts of lewd and luscious acts on a child under 14.
