    Robert has perfect pitch

    Have I made any mistakes?

    Robert has perfect pitch and plays many instruments, although he has just a basic formal music education. He believes he has inherited it from his grandfather, a well-known composer, who had three orchestras and toured the world at the top of his career.

    What do you mean by "who had three orchestras"?
    Not a professional teacher

    Would "directed/formed/led three orchestras" work?
    To live only for some future goal is shallow. It's the sides of the mountain that sustain life, not the top.

    Yes. That would be better. Also, I would say, "He conducted XXX Orchestra."

    Re: Robert has perfect pitch

    I meant to say that he had created his three orchestras.

    Three? Did the first two not work out?

    Re: Robert has perfect pitch

    I know that this sounds almost impossible, but I imagined him to be so versatile and in need of different orchestras to play the music from different periods. One for Renaissance, another for Baroque, and the third for contemporary music.

    Yes, that does seem pretty unlikely.
