Magic Lessons &
School Programs

Magic lessons and classes are available for groups, organizations, and serious individuals.  The classes cater to the ability of the student.  Basic & commercial effects are examined and explained with the emphasis on PERFORMANCE.  No "magic secrets" are exposed.  However, those developing their talent will be given means to pursue their interests.

School programs focus on learning performance skills.  Depending on the length of the course, students can learn the basics or advance to put on a full scale show.  The classes or seminars are for ages 9 and up.
