I have a high school program and use the Mel Bay Mastering the Guitar 1A book to get my classroom students reading. For concert pieces, I wrote a book of Beginning Ensembles. The harmonic language is accessible to most listeners, but bends some ears to get students hearing the harmonies of most 21st century guitar literature. There are also worksheets to accompany the pieces which get students on track to composing.
