For many players music is a visual form. They have their eyes glued to the music and occasionally look down at their hands.

By eliminating one sense, the sense of vision, you might hope that the player would listen more to what they are playing which could have a more positive impact on the listener.

When I listen to recordings of myself I hear more flaws than when I was actually playing.

Bottom line, it couldn't hurt and could produce a more positive result.

When I learnt Liszt transcendental ├ętude paysage my teacher made me shut my eyes while I played it or even when I practiced. Reason being that there were these passages of music which started going to fast there was no way your eyes could keep up with it as well as these cross handed parts towards the end.... Not just that but it helped to spark imagination, it helped me play without getting anxious and I could really feel the music.

Did that for other pieces as well
