When specifically does it seem to trill the most? I know some people's voices "trill" when they are trying to hit a high note. I think it's because their voice gets too thin (like mine does) when they go high. Personally, I find that my voice has more of a foundation and firmness when singing on the bottom half of my range. Sometimes just taking a deeper breath, like more air than you think you need, will help to avoid your voice getting too thin. But I guess I might be thinking of a different "trill" than what I think it is...

its not neccessarily when it comes to high notes...and its doesnt get more thin than it usually is
It just starts to "wave" at the end of each line, and that can get REALLY annoying. It doesn't sound bad..people actually ask me "how do you do that?!" but it just sounds wrong singing some songs. *takes a breath* and thanks for your reply.

Hey I think that's kind of cool. You can do something that no one else can! You know how some singers have their "trademark" voice that you can recognize almost anywhere? You'll be like that! For example, whenever I hear Michael W. Smith on the radio it's so easy to tell it's him because of his voice, and I don't own a single one of his CDs. lol So I don't know if your "trill" is good or bad, because it might be a special gift but you probably don't necessarily think so. If it doesn't sound bad, why is it annoying? Your description of your "trill" makes it sound like you've got vibrato on your voice. I think that's cool ~

Peace and Love ~ Kijanu <))><

It could just be vibrato. Take voice lessons. The teacher will be able to tell you what you are doing right or wrong. Be sure that your head is tilted somewhat (NOT a lot!!!) down because this straightens your wind pipe and makes for a better sound. Also, sit or stand straight up and imagine a string is pulling you from the top of your head upward. Oh! And make sure that your mouth is open. I don't know if you already do this, but if you think your "trill" isn't a good one, then maybe doing these things will help.
