"Let me start by saying that ArtOfGroove.com is an instructional website created by me (Norm Stockton/Stocktones Music/ArtOfGroove) and my friend & long-standing web developer, Jeff Huntington (Set Apart Web Design). I'm a professional musician, and this site was created in response to a great many requests I've received over the years from people interested in advancing their musical development.
Beyond the verbiage below, I just want to offer you my personal commitment that I will never sell, rent, lease or otherwise share any personal information you provide to me or my websites (ArtOfGroove.com and NormStockton.com).
God bless you & your musical endeavors!"
