Leslie Lemke was born prematurely in 1952 and developed retinal problems and glaucoma. He subsequently had his eyes removed surgically in the first months of life. He is also mentally handicapped and has cerebral palsy. And although Leslie has never had a music lesson in his life, he can repeat flawlessly on the piano whatever is played to him after a single hearing.
