    I am sure it will come with practice, but I am having difficulty doing lip trills. I can do it for a couple seconds, but then nothing. I will continue to look for pointers, but thought the forums might be beneficial as well.

    I'm with you. I showed my wife and she could do it instantly. :/ She said, "didn't you ever do that when you were little?" I probably did but, I no longer have little kid lips I guess. I also would be interested to hear pointers especially from anyone else who may have had a hard time with this and then finally got it.

    Straw singing is a great replacement for lip trills! Here's a lesson on other lip trill alternatives too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wzbyyl1d-I.

    I am struggling too!  I keep thinking it's because I'm almost 50 and my lips just aren't that firm anymore.  Also, the harder I try to do a lip trill I just end up coughing.

    It's completely fine to substitute the lip trill for another exercise that feels easier for you!
