Hello, Ron, and welcome to Delcamp. Our son lives in Austin. Great town!

Can you recommend any method books for guitar ensemble teaching? I'm just curious about the approach you have found most helpful.
Feel free to email me offline, if you prefer.
Thanks!

Best,
-Jim

Hello and thank you Jim! I love Austin, but unfortunately so does everyone else and it's gotten way too crowded here over the past few years.

The programs in the Austin school district almost all use guitarcurriculum.com. It was developed by my friends over at Austin Classical Guitar and I love it! The first three levels are brilliant! All of my beginning classes use the material from the site for the first year. After that, we still continue to use it, but not exclusively. Many of the pieces on the site have multiple levels for each part so that if you have a class with a wide variety of ability levels no one will be left out. For us, ACG also provides us with tremendous classroom support. I know ACG has a huge presence in the St. Louis area. Do you know if they have a presence in KC?

Best,
Ron

Thank you, Ron!
I'm not aware of an ACG presence in KC, but I'm going to share this information with guitar teachers I know.
Thanks very much!

Best,

Cracks me up. This is the same gripe I heard when I moved to Austin in 1988!

In any event, " Hello". Hope you find it informative here.
