How Do Magic Lessons Work?
Every lesson is based around your ability and areas of magical interest. We start by finding out what you can already do and what magic skills you already have. Don’t worry if you don’t have any yet, we all have to start somewhere. First, we’ll work on adding and improving what you already know to build your confidence. Then, I’ll give you new skills and magic to practice between lessons. This will make your magic stronger and even more powerful because you will be focusing on the right things.
Here’s How Magic Lessons Do not Work!
Magic is not about doing a few tricks or knowing how they are done. The real ‘secret’ in magic is knowing how to perform the magic.
When I first had magic lessons, I spent a lot of time and money watching very good magicians perform great tricks. They then showed me how the tricks were done. However, by the end of the lesson, I’d pretty much forgotten most of what I’d just seen. It was certainly fun, interesting and, very entertaining, but in conclusion, for learning anything, it was a waste of time and money.
In essence, the magic teacher was showing off. He had great magical skills and ability but didn’t teach anything. This can be useful for gaining a broader knowledge of magic, but there are much easier and cheaper ways to do this.
This is why, I will not show you anything that I don’t think you are not capable of doing. I won’t ‘show off’.
By the way, if you want to see me perform magic, I have loads of videos on Social Media. Over 150 at the time of writing. You could also hire me as a magician, but that’s a lot more expensive. Anyhow, if you just want to learn how tricks are done, you can go to Social Media and watch Youtube videos. However, these videos won’t teach you how to be a great magician. But, you will see how some things are done if that’s all you’re interested in.
Here’s What we WILL Do
We will work on you and your magic. You will learn magic skills, by doing, and repeating them. I will give you challenges and show you ways to enhance and improve your magic by using your skills and presentation. I will give you things to practice for your next lesson. Yes, homework! But lessons will be at your own pace, so you will never be under any pressure to cram. Relax.
You can book your next lesson whenever you want and when you feel you are ready. We work at your pace. Magic and the learning of it is and should be fun, relaxed, interesting and exciting.
I believe it’s important you can try things and not be afraid of something going wrong, which can be a big barrier to moving forward with your magic. This was an area I really struggled with and quickly ran out of people to practice too! You can use me as a trusted friend to try ideas on and things you might be struggling with or are not sure of.
Who can Learn Magic
The great thing about magic is that anyone can learn it. Why? Because, even if you’re a beginner, you can take very simple ideas and completely amaze anyone you perform too. Maybe you know a few tricks you want to improve. You’re stuck in a rut with your magic and want some honest feedback or fresh ideas, having someone you can trust to bounce ideas off can be very valuable.
So, you’ve been bitten by the magic bug but you’re not sure how to improve or move on… easy, let’s have a free consultation.
I prefer face to face sessions as these tend to be more productive. I’ll travel to you anywhere within 10 miles of Bidford-on-Avon.
So, if you’re in Stratford-upon-Avon, Evesham, Alcester, Welford-on-Avon, Studley, Chipping Campden and you have a genuine interest in learning and performing magic, then I love to hear from you. If you’re outside these areas, let me know, I can be fairly flexible.
You can also come to me, I have a nice garden and Kitchen table, and I’ll even make the tea.
Alternatively, Skype or Zoom is now quite popular, so if necessary, we could also try these. However, I do believe face to face is better, even if we are social distancing 1 or 2 meters apart. It’s up to you.
The Magic Circle Oath
I am a full member of The Magic Circle (you have to pass a really hard exam to join) and have promised not to reveal any magical secrets to anyone. In fact, I’d be expelled from The Magic Circle if I did expose secrets, because, they are very strict on exposure.
In fact, all magicians should promise not to reveal the secrets to anyone. Why? Because it instantly kills the magic. Think about how you felt when you saw a magic trick… Amazed, astounded, ‘How did you do that’ was probably what you were thinking. However, when shown the secret, I bet you were very disappointed. And you instantly lost that magical feeling.
That is why I will only teach people who have a genuine interest in learning and performing magic and who also promise to live by the Magical Oath of not purposely revealing the secrets to non- performing magicians or muggles.

The next biggest question is, how much do you charge for your magic tuition? Good question, well the first lesson/consultation is always free. After that, I charge £20 per hour. Or if you book 10 lessons it is £150, payable in advance. If you have a small group of people, then the hourly fee can be divided up between each person, I am open to ideas for small groups and classes.
You can pay by Bacs (preferred) or Paypal. I will give the details when required.
So Why Am I Doing This?
I love magic. I study and practice it every day, I am very passionate about sharing magic. This is why I do everything I can to give as much value for money as possible and very often go way beyond expectations.
However, up until recently, I had never thought about doing magic lessons. But a few weeks ago I was contacted by a gentleman in Stratford-upon-Avon who asked if I did magic tuition. After a little communication, I decided to give it a try. It went well and was very enjoyable, in fact shortly after the lesson I got the following feedback:
Thank you very much for an amazing introduction to the world of magic. Some really simple techniques although, after an hour, it was getting hard to remember!
Plenty for me to be getting on with.
I’ll be in touch after I’ve done some practice.
Great to meet you.
