On our 8th episode of the MIND SHOW, Nelson chats with the musical prodigy (and best friend), David Leibovitch. He holds one of the coolest mind skills I can think of: PERFECT PITCH. He is a virtuoso violin player and has musical skills and knowledge you can’t even fathom. In this episode they discuss relative vs. absolute pitch, his musical training, nature vs. nurture, and best of all, we put him to the test!
