The R.A.I.S.E system is a general approach to bass practice that I’ve developed over many years of professional playing and teaching. By following the 5 general elements of R.A.I.S.E you will be on a road to developing your own skills to a professional level while avoiding all the dead end or circular paths we all stumble upon at some point.

R.A.I.S.E is an acronym I use for memorizing the key areas of study. They are:

  • R: Reading
  • A: Applied Harmony
  • I: Improvisation
  • S: Style & Repertoire
  • E: Ear Training
