I'm getting back into piano (background: trained in classical from age 4 to 14; finished RCM 7) and am having some trouble synchronizing my solid chords, particularly with sharps/flats using my pinky.
I've searched on some forums and youtube about this, but I've only found info on basic fingering or syncing left and right hands.
Would anyone have tips on how to train or think about (strategically/philosophically) to improve this? (I've been also training with Hanons, though I've gathered from forums that Czerny may be better...?)
Are you having trouble making your solid chords not sound like they're being arpeggiated (slightly broken up)?
Yes, whenever I use my pinky on a black key, it tends to play before the rest of the chords. to be specific, I'm working on Chopin's prelude 4; it's most obvious in the first progression from G-B-E to F#-A-E
I can feel that my left pinky is still quite weak (pinky before or after the rest of the chord), but I've generally had trouble with (if not) syncing then over-voicing black keys. probably to do with lengths of fingers and how black keys are raised.
