This is a wonderful idea, Cliff!

Here's a great repository for music in abc notation - http://abcnotation.com/:

Here is just a taste of what else you can find, either at this site or via a link:

    around 300,000 tunes (available as free sheet music or midi sound files) at this site alone
    traditional music from medieval & renaissance times up to the present day
    plenty of free software (Windows, Mac, Linux, mobile, ...) to transfer abc into scores or midi sound files
    tunes from many cultures - a large proportion from Irish, Scottish & other Celtic sources, with plenty of music from America, England, France, Scandinavia & all over Europe and even a sizeable collection of Chinese music
    a notation format popular all over the world, particularly for folk and traditional music
    online versions of many well-known historical collections of traditional song & dance music (from collectors, composers & publishers such as O'Neill, Carolan & Playford, to name but three)
    a concise, text-based music notation system, that makes it easy to share tunes via email or on websites such as this one
    session tunes, band repertoires and original music
    specialist software which can generate tabulature and fingering charts for instruments such as guitar, mandolin & banjo (and other fretted, stringed instruments), fiddle / violin / voila, diatonic accordion, trumpet, horn euphonium & tuba, harmonica and drums
    examples, tutorials, a blog, discussion forums and plenty of other information about abc
