Sight-reading is useful when you join a band and you don't know their music. With a Score, you can sight-read the chords, the parts that need to be played, etc.... without worrying about mistakes. That is the advantage of sight-reading.
Some play piano by ear and get by but eventually, you may want to play other beautiful pieces that can be easily played through sight-reading. At least, you can break down the music into small parts, sight-read, and learn it by heart.Source(s): Berklee Teacher /Luthier & Studio Guitarist

Practice site reading!!! Everyday, play something new! Play something you have never seen before. Make sure you look at the key signature, for accidentals, realize hand position, identify key changes, and push yourself! Another great idea is asking your private teacher to have you site read something at the beginning of your lesson as a warmup every week! Have fun with it! Site reading is hard at first, but overall very beneficial. Good luck! :)Source(s): Musician for many many years!
