Having the sound in mind (not just pitch, but the whole sound) is critical in playing, at least for me, and a tenant of the Chicago school of playing. "Hear it, play it" is worth striving for. The notes on a page are more likely to sound good coming out the bell if you are thinking about the sound of a nice full G on top of the staff than if you are thinking of a black note named G sitting at the top of the staff. And sight reading is waaay easier IME if you can "hear" the notes on the page in front of you.


This, +10. I always have to "hear" the sound of a piece in my head before I can play it worth a damn.
