Arthur Foote (5 March 1853–8 April 1937) was an American classical composer, and a member of the 'Boston Six' - the other five were George Whitefield Chadwick, Amy Beach, Edward MacDowell, John Knowles Paine, and Horatio Parker.

Foote's music is generally regarded as romantic and European in it's leanings and is in a direct line of composers such as Aaron Copland, Roy Harris and William Schuman who all helped to develop a recognizably American 'sound'. Foote was an early advocate of Brahms and Wagner and promoted performances of their music and was an active music teacher and wrote a number of pedagogical works, including Modern Harmony in Its Theory and Practice (1905).

Arthur Foote was a fairly prolific composer, writing in most genres, and his music is gradually becoming better known as the rich heritage of works by 20th-century American composers is rediscovered, performed and recorded.
