There’s really much, much more to this video by Charles Limb than the couple of points I’m about to select but here goes….
There is a very clear depiction, at 06:15, of the difference of range of frequencies (Hz) and level (dB) in music and language.
There is also an interesting demonstration, at 07:07, of how those of us with normal hearing take pitch perception for granted – compared to cochlear implant patients, whose perception can be out by as much as two octaves

There is also a very interesting talk on neuroscience and musical improvisation by the same author here – look out for great demo of piano improvisation by Keith Jarret at 01:15 – including some nice ‘outside playing‘ at 02:08
