Don't Idle Engine is an ongoing project of Alan Sentman and collaborators to explore the confluence of electronic and acoustic elements in composition. Classically trained in piano, percussion and composition, Sentman explores his different influences resulting in the unique, edgy sound of Don't Idle Engine. Check out his latest release  - Everything That Falls Into Place  - nominated for a 2012 Independent Music Award!

As part of our sheet music publication series we are offering these new piano accompaniments for one track on Don't Idle Engine's latest album. They are intended as arpeggio studies for the elementary to intermediate level piano student. To be played as a ‘duet’ with the award-winning song “Center of the Universe” by Don’t Idle Engine, they motivate the student to keep time with the recording and to build ensemble-playing skills even while practicing alone.

Click here for a sample of "Center of the Universe". Click the link above to purchase the track. We offer the keyboard accompaniments for free as incentive to purchase the track, which supports Don't Idle Engine!
