It depends what grade you start and how many days a week plus class time available. Then how are the classes organized. The Sueta book is great for starting 6th graders I’ve used it many years. EE is what we use now and is ok. HOWEVER we supplement like crazy because each instrument has its own class for 55 minutes. If you start in 7th the McEntyre book from Odessa is very good. Division of Beat. It moves faster for 7th beginners. Personally the method book is less important than the supplements you add to your specific situation. We use a district wide “warmup” that starts with the beginners through HS.
