i'd add this - hope it's not redundant...

music is a language, being able to read and write it brings new possibilities for expression and communication. like literacy in any spoken language.

i understand heidi's feelings regarding notation and limitations, but i think it's actually much more freeing to have the capacity to read as well as play by ear - kind of like having a greater grasp of syntax, a more nuanced vocabulary....
different tools for expressing "beauty" through music

when i took music theory in college, having studied classical piano since i was 7, i found i was having a lot of "aha!" moments - like i was learning a new dialect or something in a language i'd known for years.
