Unfortunately, sometimes the only difference is that one is more  
grumpy than the other.

I think a variety of skills can also be a factor.  A good amateur  
might be proficient at brass band or trad jazz, or some particular  
favorite genre, whereas a good professional should be proficient in  
many styles or genres.

That's definitely not a definitive answer.  It can be a very shady  
distinction at times.
