MUSIC MY WAY BENEFIT
8 p.m., River Market pavilion. $10.

With music education steadily being phased out of elementary and middle school curriculums, Shaun Hartman, the lead singer of the local rock act Notion, has taken steps to bring musical instruction to kids after school. Through his day job with the Boys and Girls Club, Hartman earlier this year created “Music My Way,” a program where young folks ages seven to 17 can create and perform music. Kids can focus on singing, lyric writing, guitar, bass guitar, keyboard, drums and production. Together, participants record material that, at the end of the class, is released on a CD. So far, the program has produced two albums. Friday's benefit will help cover the cost of producing the CDs and allow the program to purchase more instruments. Hartman's freewheeling rock band Notion provides the entertainment for Friday's benefit show. Stylistically diverse — the band's latest album featured a hip-hop guest spot and moments of old-school country twang — Notion is fast becoming a local act not to miss. Further incentive: $1 beers.
