As an adult student I find this forum very interesting to see things from a teacher's point-of-view. The only downside is to read how some teachers refer to some of their students in a negative almost mocking sort of way. Maybe most teachers do this

On average I'd say 10:1 (10 hours practice per week, and an hour lesson). Some weeks it's more like 7:1, although this week it's more like 15:1 (I'm trying really hard to learn all three movements of the Clementi Sonatina; 7 pages in all, very hard

Bernard Mollberg has a tapering jig that uses a spring to hold the hammer tightly for use on the table saw. He tapers all of his hammers after they are hung. I've used a similar jig but found it was safer and easier to freehand them on a disc sander.

What's your piano background? Is there a reason you're interested in a 64 key piano instead of a standard 88 key piano? 64 keys is very limiting and $1000 seems like a steep price to pay.

Thanks everyone, for the good advice. Yes, the strings are quite green and very dull - worse than tubby - to play. I think in this case, to replace them will be the better option and probably no more expensive than the process of cleaning given they
