You don’t need music theory or any extensive piano lessons to produce beats but Your ears will decide. Knowing music theory can help but too often people limit themselves to 1 scale.1 out-of-key note can really spice up a beat. Here’s a cheat sheet to help you with scales and chords and try variations you may have not thought of already. Here’s a guide on promoting your tracks. I also have many other guides. More helpful tips ARE on the way. Consider supporting me.
Long answer: Yes. Look up something called “music producers cheat sheet” it’s a video of someone who breaks down how to make pretty nice melodies and stay within the parameters of music theory; Even if you don’t know it at all right now. Finding your own sound and style will come with time. But a good place to start is with that. The Creator who made the video is a hip hop and RnB producer , but you can apply the skills to your chosen genre. Also there’s a book called “music theory for computer musicians” that I found super helpful. That you could use more for rhythm, drums timing ect.
