Hey there ! I am trying to learn to compose (so far, I use Concise Introduction to tonal harmony), and this is what I did after reading the chapter on "Sentences and Other Phrase Types".
Could you tell me what you think please? Also do you have an other book to suggest? I would especially love to learn how to write for drums ? (like how to do interesting rhythms?)
Thank you !
Please tell me what im doing wrong here, and suggest what i study to make this better. I can already think of a few issues but would like to know what the pros think!

Did you know, on this day, the German composer Johannes Brahms premiered his Violin Concerto in D major with Hungarian violinist, Joseph Joachim in 1897? This concerto which has been claimed by Polish violinist, Henryk Wieniawski as an "unplayable" work while Spanish violinist, Pablo Sarasate refused to play the work. Now it is one of the greatest violin concertos ever written and it is very famous today.
Here is a link to my favourite recording of this concerto played by Itzhak Perlman:

Is there anything in life, that you hope it just stays the same?
I hope that the way we celebrate celebrations never changes. I mean I do not want to celebrate Christmas in twenty years with hologram trees, Amazon packed presents and eat roast chicken made by automation. I can also imagine in the future that we will not have that much gatherings anymore as everyone will just video call each other in their living rooms. And there will be kids receiving presents in the form of Fortnite battle passes. For me, it would be bizarre to think of such idea.
