I'm a little curious, though.

So this girl has been deaf her entire life?

In that case, how the hell does she know what she is hearing is high-pitched relative to a low pitch? For all she knows, that's just how things sound.

Probably from having experienced vibrotactile high and low pitched stimulation(ie sound so loud you can feel it)

As cool as this is, its really somewhat old news. Cochlear imlants have been around since the 1980s. Rush Limbaugh is one of the more famous implant recipients
