Why is Theory important to new musicians?

Theory has helped people pick up on small details. Sometimes, looking at what a composer has written and why a composer wrote it can sketch out the idea of how to perform a piece. Theory is more than just solfege, and sight singing; it is chord structure, reasons of why a note belongs in its place, and respecting small details like dynamics, time signature, and so on.
