Recorder Trill Fingerings
Instructions: Click on the note above which is closest to the desired note, then browse forward or backward through the list of trill fingerings.
Baroque trill fingerings begin on the note above the printed note. This grace note is usually not indicated in the music. The small grace note (and the fingering below) shows where to begin the trill. The wavy line indicates the finger or fingers to move. The trill should finish on the actual printed note. Cover and uncover the circled holes simultaneously.
This guide provides common trill fingerings useful to beginning and intermediate recorder players. For a comprehensive list of alternate fingerings, please consult an advanced recorder method book or look for comprehensive fingering systems on the web.
