Mary Lou Stout Dempler began her musical career at age seven in Louisville, Kentucky where she studied guitar, wrote lyrics and composed music at the Ursuline School of Music and Drama until she graduated Assumption High School. She majored in music, guitar and voice at Bellarmine University. She obtained a teaching certification in music and dance from the Kahelelani School which is recognized by the University of Hawaii. In addition to a 23 year teaching career, in 1997 she was the recipient of the Duesquene University Scholarship. Only fifty guitar teachers from across the nation are chosen to participate. In 1998 her husband Shane, had a ukulele custom designed and handmade for her birthday. Mary Lou fell in love with its gentle harp-like sound. In the fall of 1998, she accepted an invitation to a ukulele workshop at Harvard University, in Boston Massachusetts. She is a member of the Ukulele Hall of Fame Museum and is a professional member of the Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI). Several books written by Mary Lou, published by Mel Bay Publications Incorporated are: Easy Ukulele Method Book I, Easy Ukulele Method Book II, Sacred Music for Ukulele with a play-a-long CD and the Easy Baritone Ukulele Method Book I. The books are designed to enable anyone, regardless their musical background, to play music in minutes without reading music by use of her tablature method. Her love of the ukulele and desire to share the joy of playing music led her to found the Louisville Ukulele Association Unlimited (LUAU). In an effort to promote a “new ukulele sound” she recorded three albums to showcase the instruments versatility; "Songs From The Heart", "Unique Ukulele Christmas" and “Praise The Lord”. All three of the CDs are in the Ukulele Hall of Fame Museum along with the "Lou Lou" ukulele made for and named after Mary Lou. Terry Meiners, of WHAS Radio, branded Mary Lou the "Ukulele Goddess" and Mel Bay Music Publications made her the “Ukulele Goddess”. She has been featured on FOX News with Berry Bernson, in the Courier Journal Newspaper, Louisville Magazine, Today’s Woman Magazine, Louisville Music News and LEO Magazine. In August 2003, Capital Records published an article noting her use of country music in ukulele lessons, particularly the use of music by Keith Urban. Mary Lou met Keith Urban several times for photos and to discuss music. She appeared in an HBO documentary film as a musician, teacher, performer and ukulele enthusiast. Mary Lou, a Hohner/ Lanikai artist endorsee and published author wrote the Lanikai instrumental booklets for their Soprano, Tenor and Baritone ukuleles. These booklets are being reprinted in French, German, Japanese and Spanish. Mary Lou truly believes "If our eyes are the windows to our souls, the ukulele is the door to our hearts". Her love of music reaches past the guitar and ukulele to include; playing the mandolin and dulcimer.
