GUEST,Stim Stim, you beat me to it. Nothing to add, just to emphasize.

You're lucky to have a such a wonderful, gifted, and giving music teacher. And it is very true that music teachers are generally overlooked. There is a wide spread view that music comes from people because they are "talented", and very little understanding that music is a skill that has to be learned, note by note, one-on-one.
Sadly, fewer and fewer schools have real music teachers. Good that the Grammy's (and don't get me started about the Grammy's) have decided to give them some recognition.
