Musicians, why is it important to practice scales?
I play piano but I dislike practicing scales because I've never really seen the need for them. Is there a particular reason why it is important to practice scales?

Correct fingering and the dexterity to move through those positions quickly and without problems or misses.

It helps with sight reading and correct fingerings.
I think for the finger agility and swiftness...
It helps in all kinds of ways. Sight reading, fingering, dexterity. . .
