This short note gives a personal account of how I became an establish Jazz pianist. It emphasizes the importance of personal study and playing in a small group from the very beginning. I also describe various routes to improvisation, which I used as the basis for a MOOC on piano Jazz improvisation, currently in an experimental stage of development.
