The only way to truly be patrician at music is to make music yourself
prove me wrong
You're retarded. To have "patrician taste" which is what this board means by "patrician" you don't have make your own music. However, to be a "patrician musician" you do have to make your own music. Thosse aren't the same thing
But if one doesn't make music how could one possibly TRULY test and understand the meaning and methodology behind music? How would one be able to determine what is truly good without an applicable knowledge of music theory?
Music is made for the masses, the only reason music isn't currently cantical tunes and church hymns is because wealthy patrons, and later the masses, most if which don't make their own music, made a demand for it. Music is made for other people to hear it, so anyone with ears is qualified to be patrician. After than it comes down to taste. Writing music certainly helps one become patrician.
