Norman Dello Joio wrote some pretty accessible duets for students, and I
think they could be borrowed from NLS. The title of the book is "Family
Album"--"Play Time" is particularly attractive, and not all that difficult.
Another title you may want to look into is "Ensemble Music for Group
Piano"--not sure the editor, but it was transcribed by the National Braille
Association, and it contains a wide range of things, from easy to
intermediate. Some of the "Jeux D'Enfants" of Bizet would be good, and I
think there is one in there.
The Bastien duet books are good--accessible for most students, and some
familiar folk tunes. There is a really neat piece called "Rhythm and
Boogie"--it's either in Level 2 or 3 of the Bastien duet series--and
students love it because, when they're not playing, they have to clap
rhythms. It's pretty easy to learn but impresses the audience--especially
when done from memory!
