Because music is sound! The better your guitar sounds, the better your music sounds.
Tuning every time you play or practice, and anytime your guitar may be out of tune, is an essential habit!
If you play guitar out of tune you won't sound good, or develop an "ear" for the right pitch.
After you gain experience at proper pitch, you may be able to tune-up by listening alone.
