A drummer is a musician who plays drums, which includes but is not limited to a drum kit ("drum set" or "trap set", including but not limited to cymbals) and accessory based hardware which includes an assortment of pedals and standing support mechanisms, marching percussion and/or any musical instrument that is struck within the context of a wide assortment of musical genres.

For six years he has been drumming on anything and everything. Yes, he has drums but he can't sit at them 24/7. So he'll drum on the kitchen counter, the furniture, the doors, etc. I was told when he was in high school that he would drum on the desks and walls. I've even seen him drum on his own chest!
Do I mind? Not at all!
It allows him to be creative and musical and gives joy to the students who hear him play along with the band at church. I believe it also gives God joy to see this young man using talents that God himself gave to him. And it brings me joy.
My son is a quiet sort of fellow but he lets it all out on the drum set. He can be wild and crazy.
He can be quiet and gentle.
And always in control.
When he gets to going on them, I can't help but "do a little dance" when I'm at the kitchen sink, the stove, or by the washing machine.
We all praise in different ways. I believe this drummer boy praises through his rat a tat tats and he moves me to my feet where I dance before the Lord praising Him for all the blessings that come through this son of mine.
And I praise for being the mom of another musician who is moving to the beat of his own drum right now. I love him with all my heart and it is lonely for this one who is walking the prodigal road. But God has moved in this heart of mine and has taught me to dance in spite of this setback.
I am thankful every time I hear the beating of the drums in the next room. Unbeknownst to my son, God is speaking to me through him and his drumsticks. I hear the heartbeat of God. These are holy moments. I get up and dance, I smile, I praise, and I live on in the wait.
And the beat goes on. . .
