    A trill is a rapid succession of two neighboring notes, i.e. such as third line "B" to third space"C". Examples may be found in a million places and you've prolly heard a gazillon of 'em w/o realizing it.

    Try gettin' some classical solo albums from Wynton Marsalis, Maurice Andre, Arturo Sandavol and/or any other trumpeter you like to listen too...

    Hope this helps. Take care.
