Bassist/solo artist/clinician Norm Stockton travels extensively throughout North America, Europe and Asia. He has been profiled in Bass Player magazine (12/95 & 2/10) and is recognized by many as one of the premier bassists today.
Norm will present his bass workshop, "The Art Of Groove", at The Chuck Levin's Clinic Room on Saturday, November 21st.
During this workshop, Mr. Stockton will cover, but not limit himself to, a wide range of topics including tapping, playing artificial harmonics, and phrasing.
From Norm Stockton: "I think the most important factors for success as a vocational bassist are developing a groove-centric, ensemble-oriented approach, having a broad musical vocabulary and having the ability to sound authentic in a wide range of musical genres. Learning how to read, gaining a solid understanding of diatonic harmony that can be applied in the moment and having a tone that is appropriate to the particular context are vitally important, as well."
Norm is well known internationally as a bass educator and clinician. His bass instructional DVD series, Grooving for Heaven (distributed by Alfred Publishing), has sold extensively in the United States and abroad. His new instructional site (ArtOfGroove.com) serves subscribers from around the world. He has conducted master classes or is adjunct faculty at Biola University, The Los Angeles Music Academy, Tech Music School London, MusicDojo.com and more. He also serves as the bass columnist for Christian Musician magazine.His new book, "The Worship Bass Book: Bass, Espresso & The Art Of Groove", is published and distributed globally by Hal Leonard Corporation.
