Emotivism about art

Being largely tone-deaf, I don't appreciate music much at all. In fact, the older I get, the more music tends to annoy me, particularly when I meet it in the background of daily activities. I would much prefer listening to 4'33'' than to Mozart or Beethoven.

Yet I know that Mozart and Beethoven are much more beautiful music. Hence I embody a counterexample to emotivism about art. It is fun to be a counterexample (but I realize that it would be more fun to appreciate music, and I hope to do so in heaven).
