We are advocates for education policies, primarily at the state level, that ensure all Texas students have opportunities to study music, art, theater, and dance. We provide the public as well as policy makers with information about the many ways that arts education benefits our students and our state. We also provide GoArts supporters with timely information about proposals that may help or hurt arts education in Texas so they can be more effective advocates.

The Rhythm Trainer
The Rhythm Trainer is a free, Flash-based program for learning and practicing rhythm. There are two types of exercises; A Mode, where you click in the rhythm you hear, and B Mode, where you see a rhythm and choose the sound that matches. At the end of your session, you can email your results to anyone (for example, your teacher) and they can then see how you are doing.
This game is designed to help music students learn literacy and basic instrument fingerings. Students previously had little or no feedback related to these topics outside of their lesson. Now students may improve fingering and literacy skills by gaining feedback at home at any time.
SmartMusic is interactive practice software that gives your child instant feedback while they practice at home – and a way to have fun while doing it! SmartMusic not only makes your child sound better, it gives them a sense of accomplishment and confidence that can change their view of themselves and their potential.
