Can do. On a PC or Mac, create a new Microsoft Account at http://signup.live.com and make sure to go to account.live.com/accountsummary.aspx to Edit Security Info and fill in all the 'proofs' used to 'prove' you are the account owner if the password is ever lost or account ever stolen.

Then, sign on on the Xbox and do Settings | Account | Account Security | Change Microsoft Account
