"Play music" is categorized someone "in principle" to play a musical instrument regardless of the quality of the game. Usually played quite easy and very simple. When studied, techniques and interpretation fingering not considered or performed a song. In other words, "play music" = "play instruments with original sound".
Learning music has the connotation of learning to play a musical instrument properly. Someone had to learn to sit with the correct position (or holding musical instruments), can read music, know the dynamic song (forte / or piano hard / soft), knowing the history of music and the name of the composer, and to know music theory.
