One handed trills: Heidi Hernandez

Heidi Hernandez plays with the Phoenix Symphony, teaches, and also raises her family.

The best way to build the speed of trills (or most anything else for that matter) is comfort and consistency in technique. Salzedo technique allows for wrist oscillation, where Grandjany calls for a stationery wrist and only closing of the fingers.
