If want to significantly improve your skills on the piano, then you'll need to understand and learn how to read music. This will open up a whole new world of playing the piano.
While sheet music can be pretty intimidating it is necessary and worthwhile learning how to read the notes and information on the music sheets. Learning to read it will allow you to play music scores, understand musical terms, develop your piano skills, and become acquainted with many different music styles.
It is very helpful to think of music as a new language. You can learn to speak English without knowing how to read, but communication skills and developing your vocabulary will be impeded.
The same is true for music. Learning to read sheet music will make it much easier to learn specific musical pieces and practicing all the different playing techniques.
Here is the "Piano For All" Course that I highly recommend to help you get started with learning music and playing the piano.
