I started studying jazz at local university 4 months ago and at that time I couldn't read or write at all. In my opinion to start writing you need sense of rhythm and good relative pitch. The first one I got down to lvl sufficieñt enough for my studies using an app. There's ton of them, I'm using rhythm master for instance. Work through the exercises to get good idea where in the 4 beats the note you re hearing is and for the other part spend good time at the piano learning to hear intervals. Start with major scale, learn to recognize the sound of tonic to all 6 degrees, then work from there to more advanced stuff. Nothing you're born with, just put in the time and in a few months you'll be set, to write down whatever you hear in the bus or wherever u may be.
