"None of us can read music. None of us can write it." - John Lennon, 1980

The Beatles used "head arrangements"; they would work out beforehand what they wanted to play on recordings, with help from producer/arranger George Martin. When they needed sidemen (like Alan Civil on "For No One", and David Mason on "Penny Lane"), Martin would score parts for them.

The answer to this question has to be "the same way you read any music." If you know how to read music, you can read sheet music. If you don't, you are going to need some training or study. Learning to read music is like learning to read a language.

None of The Beatles members can write nor read music. They only remember it.

Yes. Reading sheet music is not a pre-requisite for singing, by any means. In fact, I sing, and play several instruments, and I read sheet music very little.

Reading sheet music is similar to learning how to read as you learn the sounds of each note and how they work and flow together.

One can learn how to read a music sheet by watching YouTube videos. On YouTube one can see step by step videos and there are new videos added on a daily basis.

Not really. The Beatles couldn't read music. The advantages of being able to read music is that you can play pieces exactly as they are supposed to be played. If you can't read music then you'll have to rely on knowledge of note pitches and memory.
