trill rhythmnically, not just free trill. Try to trill to a 16th note rhythmn or maybe even 32nd notes if the piece is slow enough. Also try triplet rhythmns.

I found that curling the trilling fingers almost inward under the hand helps a lot... Rising a little the wrist during the trilling seems also to help... (All the trillings I play right now use fingers 2 & 3 !).

This might only work (seem to work ?) with me ! Just try and let us know... !

Cheers,

definately experiment using different fingers (such as 1323...or even 1324 or 1423) also try practising very slow and playing in rythm as bolliverallmon suggests but being able to play slow with no tension is important
rach on!
