Our Story

The late Ruthanne Lodato founded Music Together Alexandria in 1996. The center is the 69th of 3000 Music Together® locations in over 40 countries. Ken Guilmartin, Founder of Music Together, said, “I remember Ruthanne as one of our energetic "early adopters" who helped to pave the way for the growth of Music Together.”


Ruthanne held a bachelors and master’s degree in music and taught piano lessons and music in local schools. Music Together’s curriculum perfectly joined Ruthanne’s passions and areas of expertise-early childhood education and music. 


For nearly 25 years, Music Together Alexandria has shared music and movement with families across Alexandria.


The Music Together Alexandria team is honored to be a part of your child’s musical and cognitive development and are committed to keeping Ruthanne’s legacy of love for music and children alive. 

Music Together Alexandria was featured by WJLA-TV in August 2018 in a segment called Working Woman.
