Can anyone suggest (with a brief description if possible) a tried and true book/method suitable for use with an older man (beginner) who wants a traditional, non-Suzuki approach and wants to move quickly to his end goal of being able to sight-read easy classical and pop songs? He has arthritis quite badly, so isn't expecting anything amazing; but he wants to progress fast and see how what he is practicing relates to the end goal, plus he wants it to be somewhat enjoyable in the process, not too tedious. He is not very patient with carefully laying a beginning foundation, but wants to get to the "fun stuff" right away.
I'm just about out of ideas to try with this older beginner, and would greatly appreciate any suggestions for a method book, as well as for an easy duet book suitable to keep his interest during the early slogging till I can get him over the hump - thank you!
