Stop Trill Early – Kreutzer 22

Practice breaks or pauses give us thinking and planning time in the middle of phrases so we can solve technical issues.

In this excerpt from Kreutzer “Study 22”, Fintan pauses on the lower note of the trill to allow the left hand to prepare for the next three notes.

It’s important to keep sounding out the note with the pause by keeping the bow moving. This lets us hear that the trill has stopped.
