Default Being Friends With Your Drum Teacher

Ok. After 4 years of teaching myself drums and waiting until my parents could afford drum lessons, I finally got a drum teacher in August. At first, I just saw him as my drum teacher. Now, I am starting to see him as a potential friend, and I've been wanting to just hangout with him. However, he's at least 20 years older than me (I'm 19), and I know he likes me as a student but not as a friend which I can understand. Nonetheless, I still want to be his friend, only his friend. I'm definitely not crushing on him. As I am going away to college in August, I won't be taking drum lessons from him. What I'm trying to ask is: How do I handle this? Is it weird to want to be friends your drum teacher? Are any of you friends with your drum teacher?
I drum for Him.
