Trills Followed by Turns

Trills Followed by Turns

"Practise a passage without the turn and without the trill. Then add in just the turn. Then add in just the trill. Then play the passage as written."

Coordinating the turn after a trill is an important issue for clarity of articulation.

Practise each element separately and then combine them, making sure that each component is calm and fluid.

This excerpt is from "Romanze in F" by Beethoven, Bar 5.
