Bring the kids out for a family night of sing-a-long fun with Mr. Symon and the whole Hot Toast Music Co. Band. Hot Toast Music Co. is the product of dad, educator and musician Symon Haijar who writes irresistible kids’ music, all with purpose. Hajjar, or Mr. Symon as his students call him, draws inspiration from the way children often find magic in the mundane parts of life that are hidden in plain sight. By integrating science, self-discovery, and creativity he creates a soundtrack for learning that explores both the world around and the world within. Combine catchy melodies and clever lyrics with DIY instruments so everyone can play along and next thing you know you’ve got… HOT TOAST
