What I think is best about Ron Drotos and Keyboard Improv.com is that the lessons are always kept fun. The best way of learning is to always have fun and Ron always enforces the importance of that. The lessons are meant to be done slowly so as to ensure getting the full benefit of what Ron has to offer and he is always open for any questions one may have, to help better understand concepts. It takes a person who is passionate about music to be able to have the passion and desire to teach others. Ron Drotos is an awesome teacher!
I have watched Ron Drotos ‘in action’ for over 20 years, coaching and teaching countless musicians. He will give you the knowledge and confidence you need to express yourself through improvisation at the piano and keyboard.

I’ve tried other websites and this is by far the best. Ron is a great teacher who cares about his students. Do yourself a favor and sign up for his lessons, which I consider to be the best content on the internet.
Nowhere else – and I’m including all the jazz books I’ve purchased over the years and various websites I’ve been a member of – does anyone present improvising the way Ron does! His lessons are fabulous and his piano playing inspires me to finally attain my dream of becoming a jazz pianist. I highly recommend this “gem” of a website to anyone who wants to learn jazz piano!
I’ve learned more from Ron in one month than from all my other piano teachers combined. Highly recommended!
Ron, you are the Piano Sensei!
Thank you, Ron, for creating such a comfortable and fun environment for exploring the music that lies within all of us. Your extraordinary approach to teaching has ignited a passion within my daughter Lauren that has vastly improved her technical skills as well as her ability to express herself. Perhaps more importantly, your guidance and encouragement have helped bring Lauren’s self confidence to a whole new level. We are so grateful to have found you and look forward to working together in the years ahead.

Ron Drotos is one of the most creative teachers I have ever met. I used to love watching him teach my teenage son (who is a jazz violinist). Ron has the ability to take any subject and turn it into an adventure. He’s great with any age – he’s been teaching my 83-year-old beginner father too!

Taking a lesson from Ron Drotos is like having a cup of coffee with a friend. Easy and relaxed. His teaching style makes you feel comfortable to try something new, and I always look forward to the next lesson. Whether he’s bringing to life a classic pop song or analyzing a classical sonata, Ron has an amazing talent to help me learn. Even at the age of 65, I am continuing to improve. I am very excited to use his online piano course because my secret desire is to play the blues.
Thanks to Ron’s teaching, I now feel confident enough as a pianist to play piano bar gigs, accompanying myself while singing jazz and pop songs. Do yourself a favor and study piano with him!
I’m so happy I found Ron’s lessons online. His demeanor, impressive background, and ability to convey the material in such an easy to assimilate manner is exactly what I was hoping to find in an instructor. My playing is improving by leaps and bounds!
