Webmagicschool is a web based magic school teaching conjuring and illusion using step-by-step video tutorials over the internet.
Web Magic School is more than just another site showing how magic tricks are done; the tutorials are presented with respect and value for the secrets and ethics of magic. Each lesson covers a magic trick and explores how to perform it properly with attention paid to handling, presentation and getting the most effect from the magic. By doing the magic properly, you will get huge reactions and make a name for yourself.
When I first got interested in magic there was no internet, no YouTube and no Google to search, I was only 6 years old and the secrets of magic seemed imposable to get hold of. My only option was to learn magic the classic way by becoming a magicians apprentice and learning the knowledge from books and manuscripts. My magician training took years to complete and in a way I am still learning some thirty odd years later.
Today if you search “learn magic” you will be undated with tens of thousands of results mostly made up of people showing how tricks are done. There is a danger in learning magic this way as knowing how a trick works, is very different from being a true master of magic.
Often the people exposing the magic secrets have little understanding of the correct handling of the effect and they pass on bad advice, paying no attention at all to the presentation of good magic. This exposure culture has flooded the internet with poor quality tricks, and as my magic teacher said to me “dogs do tricks, magicians do magic”.
If you are serious about learning magic then you have come to the right place, this internet based magic school aims to offer quality teaching of magic whilst holding the integrity of the ethics that underpin being a proper magician. If this makes sense to you then check out the membership options.
Each lesson teaches a trick with a slight, sleight is a word for a secret move and this is where the term sleight of hand comes from. You will learn card tricks that professional magicians use and you will be able to do them well and amaze your friends. You will learn coin magic with attention to the different palming techniques that are closely guarded secret tools that magicians have used for hundreds of years. Each magic lesson builds on the previous so your skills improve as you progress through your learning and you will see how slights can be adapted and manipulated to create your own magic trick inventions.
Magic is a cool hobby but when it is done badly it makes you look and feel like a fool. Web Magic School gives you the information on how to do the trick properly and you get the experience of over three decades of professional performance and wisdom in how to do it properly so you come out looking like a hero.
New lessons are added all the time so in addition to the bank of magic lessons already in the magic school, you can look forward to new moves and tricks being added regularly.
A library of card magic slights show how the slights are done with attention to handling as well as tips to get your slights looking smooth. There is even a video on how to practise your sleight of hand in such a way that you are almost doing it on autopilot. New sleights, cuts and shuffles are added regularly so you can increase your knowledge base and skill level.
I started learning magic at the age of 6 so children are warmly welcomed however there are some effects that you need to be 18 or older to perform as they use items such as a knife in the presentation. The age restricted effects are clearly marked not suitable for Children.
I welcome anyone who has a serious interest in magic.
