I suppose the answer is, that musicial ability, like artistc and literary creativity, will find expression somehow. Gentlemen didn't have to learn, but many did. Didn't George III play a mean piano, or is that my imagination? And did't Prinny favour the cello?
Arthur Wellesley (sorry, I bring him up all the time, don't I?)drove his mother batty with his determination to play the violin from an early age, according to Elizabeth Longford's Wellington, the Years of the Sword . He 'took after' his father, Garret Welllesley, a gifted composer and conductor of his own private orchestra.
