Trill engraving

Hello everyone!

When I have several trills in a row, but there are measures between them, what is the correct notation? Might one use one single trill line, overlapping the measures, or would it be better creating one line for each single note?

It’s probably overall more common to see separate trills for each note, but it’s certainly sometimes written the way you show, with a single trill line. In this case I would be tempted to use separate trill lines because of the rests in the passage.

Thank you so much for your fast reply! I’ll consider doing so.

I wouldn’t use trills at all for the bigger intervals.


A fair point. If I end up not following it, I can assure you it’ll purely be due to aesthetic reasons.
