    Peter formed the first brass band

    Have I made any mistakes?

    Peter formed the first brass band in town, played a couple of instruments and composed music. He would probably have made a great career if it had not been for his drinking, which not only destroyed his vocation but also his family. Until his death from cirrhosis, he could be seen in a park playing his cornet for a can of lager.

    You can also use "had it not been" instead of "if it had not been".
