Whats the point of reading sheet music? Unless you're unlocking the secrets of the universe I'd rather listen to music.

What's the point of reading sheet music? Well, unless you are a musician, there is no point in reading sheet music unless you enjoy reading it, I suppose. That's really all there is to it. No point in doing it if you don't much care for doing it. :-)

Personally, I got a few film scores as sheet music to brush up on my music reading skills, which are quite rusty and underdeveloped. So I got some classical music sheet music by Beethoven, Debussy, Mahler, etc., but I find it interesting to look at the full printed score of a film score like TOTAL RECALL, that's really all there is to it. I enjoy looking at the "nuts and bolts" of things. (Come to think of it, I enjoy blueprints too, even fictional ones, such as blueprints of the "USS Enterprise"... not much point in them either, unless you simply enjoy them.)

Reading sheet music is like reading screenplays; there is not much point in reading screenplays if you don't enjoy it for some reason.

Making one's own music is quite the pleasure. Like discovering a planet with chlorophyll on it. big grin
