In my opinon you definitely need a teacher to prevent you from developing bad habits but the price is too high in my opinion (though I do not know your level or the teacher's quality of lesson).

And about the ear training I think if you are above 16 it is not mandatory to have a teacher for your ear training. You just have to practice hearing the different intervals, chords etc for atleast 30 mins a day to improve your relative pitch.

Also check the year of experience.. Should be minimum 25 years.. Ear training comes only when you appear for any graded practical music exams by the London University..

It is definitely worth spending that money, since ear training requires utter dedication and awareness of frequencies on a sub-conscious level.

Fees depend on how easily he can help you to learn music theory and ear training technique.
Comments

Yes its worth it because first of all the tutor is coming to your home and I think it is better to have a tutor for better learning and practices .

Well, if you are confident that you can learn then go for it, music is not cheap so you have to pay. Ear training is not an option to teach, a music teacher must need to teach along with the sight reading.

I can not comment on the rate. But ear tuning is a lengthy self generating process. No one can guarantee that he can tune some students ear, the tutor can help a bit only.

I can not comment on the rate. But ear tuning is a lengthy self generating process. No one can guarantee that he can tune some students ear, the tutor can help a bit only. To make it happen the only solution is the student has to listen songs and music as much as possible, more time is required for listening than learning of any instrument be it guitar, keyboard etc. it is said 70% listening & 30% practical learning process. Once you learn the basics and comfortable in playing chord progression, musical notations clearly, then try to play any song by hearing it. Gradually you would learn on your own and ear will be tuned as well in due course of time. I can say that ear tuning is completed only when you are in a position to write the complete notation, chord progression, bass line etc. of any songs by simply listening to it. Its absolutely my view from experience. Cheers

Compared to learning in institutes is more higher but the tutor comes to you to teach you so yes 3000 is worth spending for private.
Comments

Having ear training will not make you a better guitarist, starting early will be beneficial though. Spending 2000 depends upon no of classes per month and formally training for recognised graded examinations.
