To love is like playing the piano: First you learn the theory, then you follow your heart.
But to really love or be a musician, you don't really have to learn the theory if you don't want to.
I do not know how to read music. Despite that, I've learned to play guitar, piano, flute, harmonica, accordion, ukulele, a bit of violin, ... So I would say that I am living proof that you can make music without being a "real" dedicated musician! Like you can simply love someone without being a "real" dedicated lover.
Some times ago, a kind friend showed me a quick pattern with the left hand to improvise. Sharing knowledge is a good way to share love, I would say. :-)
It inspired me, so I trained a bit, and decided to film it. So here's one of my first improvisation in some kind of Jazz piano.
