Question about supplementing lesson songs
I am wondering if supplementing songs on my own with lessons is helpful or a hindrance

In fact Suzuki is very bad for popular songs.

ABRSM are much better, and they change every 4 years.

Here's a pdf of the 2016-2019 syllabus. If it had been in an easier format, I'd have cut and pasted the more more important stuff for you. But you'll notice things like Edelweiss and Pig Ankle Rag and Over the Rainbow if you look through it. Paul Desmond Take 5, there's Gershwin, Grappelli. That way you can maybe track your progress. You should be able to find older ones to see what different stuff they had to offer.
