Is music objective, or is it subjective?
have the greatest player of all time of classical music
play it for someone who really doesn't like Classical Music, they will not like it, they will not really care about the logistics of it, it will bore them.
To critique this experience is completely a selfish response
via the recipient who lacks all qualifications necessary
to be considered an artist.
what I am asking is that the liking a certain band/performer, etc,
classical as opposed to rock and roll, is that subjective or objective.
I don't think it matters how Technically good they are there would still be certain
people who just don't like it at all. Period. To me that makes it subjective.

You are not wrong, and could never be wrong as there are no "right or wrong" answers or questions regarding this.
The artist does not "feel" in terms of right or wrong. To the artist, it just "is" .
It appears that you are concerned with market ability or general acceptance.
As far as that goes, there are a multitude of layers that, upon further focus, all become subjective.
Please explain to me your definition of "Objectivism" in terms that are meaningful to you, as this
concept could easily delve into the greater depths of our current philosophies and become quite complicated.
I'm sure you agree........no?
But I'd say that it applies to probably just about everything in life. Not just music.
She says it's fact he is a musical genius... that I told her
was subjective, it depends on the listener
but in cases of Einstien and Tesla reknowned
geniuses, that is widely accepted as fact correct?
For anybody that really has the stones to sit here and say "Rap isn't music": Go to a packed out arena for a Rap show. Get front row center. Now try to convince 20,000 screaming and dancing fans that they aren't listening to music
