 I watched the intermediate lesson that included trills today and decided to give it a try. I don’t think I have it quite right and am not really sure how to fix it. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi Roger, the preliminary exercises to trilling are dexterity exercises and good air flow control. Let's work on that first before we dive into trilling. Side note: try your first trills with an easier combination like F# to G. Trilling D is one of the harder trills.

@trumpetheadquarters you are right it is easier to trill on the F# but you would think the lower one would be easier
