Sometimes you don't need to read music at all. If the design team will be following the text and placing cues off the text or visuals, then reading the music won't be necessary.

For one musical, the LD had majority of the cues taken off visuals, while a few were text.

Another musical, the LD had some cues taken off music, some off visuals and few off text.   

"On the first day the lord said....Light cue 1, GO! Then there was light".
