Tell your teacher what you've told us. He sounds like an admirable sort and I'm sure that he will accept your decision and wish nothing but the best for you. I think that I can speak for most applied teachers in saying that what brings us joy is to see our students successfully fulfilling their dreams and goals, whether those pursuits are on the horn, in academics or in any other area.
As Helen Keller once said," No effort that we make to attain something beautiful is ever lost".
Best of luck.
