I have a C flute, which I recently dug out and am relearning.

I've noticed that the first trill key for C-D doesn't work as well for high C-D. There is a change in pitch and quality, much more noticeable than the change for the normal octave C-D trill.

Is there an alternate, easier (than alternating the normal C-D fingerings) way to do a high C-D trill?

My brief experience with the Clarinet is that you should be able to "bend" the note a little closer; and if it's quick enough, no one should notice. –  luser droog May 13 '12 at 21:23

@F'x showed me this resource, it displays the trill as follows:

The red key is what you alternate.

The 2nd trill key is used for the higher C-D trill. Better sound quality.
