Introduction: How to Play a Thousand Years on Piano Easy

A Thousand Years - Christina Perri - Easy Piano Tutorial for Beginners.

Learn how to play your first song on piano: Beginners can learn this song in a couple of days. You will play with both hands but the left hand is easy because the hand position stays almost the same.

I started learning piano a few months ago. Before I could play a piano song, I looked for easy songs to play on piano. Most of them are too difficult for beginners, and when they are not, they sound like "kids songs".

It's why I share my own tutorials of easy piano songs I practiced. I think it can help beginners because the tutorials are easy but they sound really good on piano.

It is the secret for a successful learning: staying motivated because you can play easy piano songs quickly.
