Commentary:

This exercise will help you to work on quintuplets, a figure that is generally not well known and not practised very thoroughly. My experience as a professional has shown me that mastering these figures will help you understand bars of odd time and placement of complex figures. Many people might think that exercises like this are unnecessary, but nothing could be farther from the truth. You are learning the language of rhythm and music is based on figures like these. Most of the students who have practised these exercises have found them to be practical and effective when playing different patterns.
