Not that I do this (but I should)..... If you only have 30 min... are you using some of that time to warm up?
@georgeusa You can sleep one hour less each day, then you have 90 minutes of practice per day, wich it´s not a lot too, but if you get a really good teacher, will make your drumming blossom.if you only had 30 minutes a day to practice drums how would u be practicing that time?@
I was already sleeping for only 5-6 hours, getting less sleep would be even more harmful... Fortunately I was able to return to a more acceptable 6 1/2 to 7 hrs a night.
alternately, sounds like a practice pad, a music stand , seat, stick control book, a pair of Vic Firth Generals #1's, and a Franz metronome.
