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