Official adopting system is a textbook management model that is being widely implemented in many countries around the world. The management of music textbooks is related to music teaching and the spread of traditional culture. Both China and Japan apply the model of private distribution and national approval in the management of music textbooks. However, there are differences in the economic and political systems and historical cultures between two countries. Therefore, it is conducive to mutual learning, constantly improving their textbook management models, and promoting the development of ethnic culture and music education through studying the differences between China and Japan’s music textbook management models.
