The new aria I started in class has a bit of trilling, and I totally don't understand how to to trill at all. I'd really appreciate some tips, if you guys have any =D!

well, to "trill" you usually need a natural vibrato. it what allows the frequency of the note to vibrate very slightly without changng pitch. its usually easier to trill at a higher pitch. are you soprano, or alto ?
i have a very prominent vibrato, and trust me, it can be SO annoying at times haha.

I'm a soprano, and the trilling in particular is at a relatively high pitch (near the top of the staff), but I don't think I'm doing it right b/c it feels like I'm forcing it.

My vibrato is not very prominent, so that might be why it's harder for me...

i could suggest making sure that your jaw is relaxed before trying to handle the note that your trilling on. really wggle your jaw about, perhaps warm up, then go stand infront of a mirror and sing your part, making sure that your jaw is completely relaxed, that way your vowels wont be forced, and perhaps it will come out more naturally. and if the note is f or ff, then perhaps just belting it will sound better ? just PLEASE make sure that the pulse in your vibrato is right haha. ive heard so many forced vibratos, and its not good haha. VIBRATO : an even fluctuation of pitch (or volume) of a single note. good luck =]

Thanks for all the advice! I definitely need to loosen up my jaw. I'll try that mirror exercise :D!
