What notes are you trying to trill? I had a thumbplate system oboe, and all the trills remained the same. The exception was that the thumbplate allowed an additional way of playing B flat and C. You would release the thumbplate, and then the Right hand index finger wasn't needed for either note. Did you have a particular trill in mind?

The trills will be basically the same as for a conservatory system, except for anything involving Bb and C (where the thumbplate is raised). The charts available here should be a good starting point.

Please specify which make and model oboe you have, and the trills you want help with and I'll post them on here.
