    I do not have facial nerve damage and cannot do trills! I can get a trill for about two seconds at times but usually less than a second. I can hum, so I hum as advised. Even with humming I run out of air very quickly and must keep stopping and quickly take in more air. Perhaps the trills are taking much more breath?

    There are plenty of great lip trill alternatives! https://www.voicescienceworks.org/sovt-exercises.html

    Here's a video demonstrating some of my favorites: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wzbyyl1d-I

    I would agree with Pauline about this. What are some ways I can work on extending my lip trills? Or will practice overtime take care of that?

    That was helpful! Thank you! I think I'm just getting frustated that I can't lip trill as well as you...haha. This is a journey. Can't expect to be perfect on day one.

    Glad to help! Lip trills are a personal favorite of mine, but they're not necessary - plenty of other semi-occluded exercises to choose from!
