[Menvi-discuss] Guitar Method that Goes Beyond The First Book?

As a teacher of sighted guitar students, most of them kids, I'm
having a heck of a time finding one of the popular method book
series in Braille that goes beyond the first book in its series.
With adults, I would just use the first of the so-called Berklee
books, A Modern Method for Guitar Volume 1, by William G. Leavitt.
Before page 30 you're into tied and dotted notes, rests, chords
etc. For adults, it presents more material quickly than anything
else. It's excellent.
However, I'm having trouble finding Braille for anything I can use
with younger people.
Will Schmid, hal Leonard Method: only book one seems available.
This appears well organized, but I have at least one 7-year-old who
would benefit from book 2, since she can already read the basics.
Mel Bay: similar story. One of their particularly old method books
is available, but only the first book, which is very basic.
Is anyone else in my position and what have you done to address
I refuse to just tab everything and short-change my students by not
teaching them how to read actual music notation.
Thanks for any suggestions,
