Have you thought of percussion? There is a very famous percussion player - she is from Scotland - and her name is Evelyn Glennie. She is completely deaf but can play any percussion instrument - tympani, marimba, Xylophone, everything. She has toured all over the world with her performances. You can google her on the internet and find out all about her. She feels the vibrations through her feet. I have seen her perform and she is absolutely marvelous.
