Shampoo allows deaf girl to play violin

This video raises two interesting questions:

a) What in the world does it have to do with shampoo?
b) How can a deaf person learn to play a musical instrument?

Some answers to the second question can be found at physorg.com, which notes that deaf people can feel the vibration of sound. Therefore, percussion instruments that make a lot of vibrations are the easiest for them to learn. But what highly accomplished deaf musicians (such as Beethoven and Evelyn Glennie) share is "musical training, perfect pitch and excellent hearing before they suffered its loss."

Man, I love being jaded. That was so full of clich├ęs and melodrama tricks-- it's just ridiculous. The whole thing amounts to one big cheap shot which seems to be aimed at women.
