The balance and the emphasis of the three dimensions: “Music Elements and Knowledge”, “Teaching Materials” and “Types of Activities” derived from the content of the text series are investigated by a set of quantitative content analysis instrument. The intra and inter relationship of the listed features of each textbook series provides the basis for the conclusion and recommendation of the study.
