The 8 Traits of a True Magician

Students will learn the importance of being kind to their audience, and treating others the way they want to be treated.
Lesson 1
The best way to be prepared is to always have a plan and to think things through. We do this by teaching how to have everything set-up before the show.
Lesson 2
We teach students how to be excited about their performance. For example, smiling, projecting confidence, and using hand gestures to make performances magical!
Lesson 3
Students learn to introduce themselves enthusiastically. We teach our students what to say when they perform for family and friends. Also, the ways to engage audiences and trust in their practice, so they can have fun while performing.
Lesson 4
A true magician never brags about what they can do, they are always ready to learn more. We help students take comfort in admitting their mistakes. In addition, we show how to listen to others while learning from each performance!
Lesson 5
Your child is encouraged to allow themselves to be different. We stress how true magicians do not take ideas from others without permission and are not afraid to fail. We help students add their own personal touch, which fosters creativity.
Lesson 6
Children will learn how to be the best version of themselves. We encourage each student to refrain from trying to be something they are not. Most importantly, we encourage our students to always be truthful, and not blame others!
Lesson 7
A true magician gives a gift to an audience. Students do this by being authentic while performing, and being humble with their skill. They give without expecting anything in return. We encourage students to be creative and create a memory. Therefore, the REAL gift is the feeling they get from performing.
