I’m often asked, “How can I learn to
do magic?” The only way I can answer that is to remember
how it happened for me. As a kid, I would get magic sets for
Christmas and birthdays. Typically, each set would have a dozen
or so tricks, but only one or two good ones. These were the ones
I would focus on, practicing and practicing, working on the moves and
story to try to make it entertaining and amazing.
Of course, that would leave ten wasted tricks.
Therefore, to save you the trouble, I’ve
decided to offer only the tricks that I think are good, amazing and
Here’s what I've come up with . . . magic
tricks that I actually learned as a kid. These are (in my
opinion) the best of all the magic sets I got. These are the
effects (that’s what we magicians call “magic
tricks”) that really did “Fool my friends, and amaze my
family”, thus giving me the confidence to continue in magic.
I’ve chosen to only offer - what I consider
to be - the best manufactured tricks, not cheap knock-offs. Most
are made by Royal Magic, an established name in magic tricks.
If you would like one (or all) of them, it would
be an excellent way to begin magic. I will even email a video
explaining the secret method, and working of the tricks.
It’s called a “de-gaff” in the business, and it
- basically - teaches you the trick.
