A music critic should have musical, historical, and psychological education. He should also passionately love music and have utmost respect for the performer in general. A classical concert artist spent a lifetime to arrive at mastery at an instrument and the authority of an individual interpretation ~ the responsibility of a music critic is an attempt of an educated understanding and emphatic explanation rather than the self-indulgent expression of stereotypes based on established and/or personal taste alone. A music critic should also be able to write good.
