This love song has a breath-taking, magical feeling to it. The original recording by Christina Perri has a prominent finger-picking guitar part which seems to be begging for a harp version! Christy-Lyn’s arrangement maintains the beautiful simplicity of the song while making it really comfortable to play on the harp.

Difficulty level & Skills required

Early-intermediate: The right hand has some slightly more complex rhythms, and often plays more than one note at a time. The left hand has a variety of shapes and patterns, and the overlapping bracket sequences take more concentration than the late-beginner pieces typically do.

    Great instruction for all levels of harpists. It is a beautiful stand-alone, or accompanied piece. I do wish it had a bit more of an intro, to add atmosphere to the beginning of the song, but both hand parts together build and compliment each other to create such a fantastic story. Very well written musically to encompass all the loveliness of A Thousand Years. 10/10 Instruction, encouragement, and ambiance. Thank you!!

    I’m a senior, new to music, and with vision, hearing, and joint challenges. Timing and rhythm have been very challenging for me, but this course has been a real breakthrough for me in that area. I’m so very grateful for your gentle and very skillful teaching which has given me a wonderful late in life gift!

    I really enjoyed learning this piece. It’s frustrating to find that I still make mistakes when playing along with you! So I keep practising with the full speed recording. Thank you

    I really enjoyed this piece. I learned a great deal and felt a real sense of accomplishment. I thought it would have been helpful to explain in the last measures where the music had a bracket around the left hand cords that you don’t play in measure J, left hand, measures 45 and 47. explain why you don’t keep repeating the cord. some people don’t know how to read music and this would have been helpful. Thanks for asking.
