Oct 15 '21 at 13:59 comment added Darren Seems like the movement of the thumb under is subtle because you are moving your hand at the same time.
Oct 15 '21 at 11:02 comment added Tim @Aaron - a good exercise to eliminate problems like this one is to play 3 or 4 octave arps, but emphasise, for example, the 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, etc. notes - then even it all out - as is expected from any good pianist.
Oct 15 '21 at 10:58 comment added Tim 'Moving your thumb under' is not the whole movement. In fact, getting the action right hardly need the thumb to go 'under'. When only that happens, the likelihood is that the OP's problem occurs. It's not the problem of dropping the thumb on a note within a tuplet, but keeping the whole hand moving laterally, so the thumb plays its note with no more or less volume.
Oct 15 '21 at 2:10 comment added Aaron It teaches emphasis of every fourth note. I've tried to cover this in my own answer. I'd value your opinion on whether it gets the point across sufficiently.
Oct 15 '21 at 2:07 comment added Alexander Woo @Aaron - it breaks the improper emphasis of emphasizing every 3rd note. (If someone sees a good way of saying this in the context of the answer, go ahead and edit it in.)
Oct 14 '21 at 23:28 comment added Aaron How does practicing 4-octave, 16th-note arpeggios help with putting the proper emphasis in a 5-tuplet?
