What Is The Magic Course?

You will learn over 75 sleights, 20+ effects, 10+ full routines, and my full magic theory. The price turns out to be UNDER $33 PER WEEK for the 6 week period.

The Magic Course is a first of its kind. It is a video masterclass of everything I learned about card magic over my 20 years of performing sleight of hand. It's goal is simple : to make YOU a master magician in 5 weeks! I spent the last months structuring the course with only the strongest material in mind. I realized over the last few years of being on youtube that there is so much more I want to teach and talk about - but didn't feel right putting it on my channel. I took all of that knowledge and put it into this course. These are the real secrets in making your magic powerful. Not only will we take you through the sleights and effects that I perform, but I will break down everything we learn so you understand why it works, what makes it strong, and how to successfully perform them for maximum impact. Most importantly, I will teach you my theory behind magic and how we can think of our performances at a higher level. In the BONUS week I will share secrets of mine that I use at the end of my performances to never be forgotten that I have NEVER shared with anyone. I'll keep exactly what it is a secret but in my humble opinion, this will be worth the price of this entire course.  

Who Is This Course For?

I would love to say that this course is for everyone. Unfortunately there are many magicians out there who are complacent with their magic. They believe that magic is something quick and fun to show their friends - they dilute the power of it by calling what they do "tricks". We've all seen them. They give magic a bad name and worse of all, they don't want to improve. They might say "why don't you just do a double lift quickly and make the card change?" To be completely honest, I was that magician. I thought because I could do a few quick tricks and get a reaction that made me a good magician. I stopped trying to improve. 10 years ago I probably would not have bought this course because of that ego. With that being said, if you are comfortable doing your few quick tricks then this course is probably not for you. So who is this course for? I created this course for the magicians out there who want to take their magic to the next level. EVERYONE will be able to perform the material taught on this course, but there is so much more than just that. I created this course for those who see the potential in what they do and understand the power we all hold as magicians. For those who want to change lives with their magic. For those who want their card magic to be more than just "tricks" - to create meaningful connections with the audience, powerful performances, and never be forgotten. 

How Does It Work?

This is a 5 week course containing 50+ HOURS of video lessons (80+ individual videos). Each week, beginning August 27th, I will send out that weeks material direct to your email. They are downloadable videos which you can watch in your free time. Each weeks lesson will build on the previous lessons. Each section is broken down into individual videos so that everything is clear and easy to follow. At the end of the week I will send you our LIVE event (pre-recorded from last years course) where I go through the material taught that week. I will be there to answer questions, go over anything you might have trouble with, and make sure everyone understands the material taught and is ready to move forward. This live stream will most likely take place on a secret instagram account where I can communicate with you all. Details about each lesson can be found below where I break down each weeks material, and what you are going to learn.

My Promise To You

My goal for this course is simple - to take you from the level you are at right now, and to turn you into a master. Is that possible in 5 weeks? I would say yes. The material taught on this course is easy technically - for the most part. I've spent my career mastering hard sleight of hand, but the most powerful magic I perform is things we can all do. The real secret is how to take something that is simple and make it powerful - and that's my promise to you. At the end of this course you will have the fundamental knowledge of what it takes to make ANY magic you decide to perform 10x more powerful. You will be able to take the most basic sleights and effects and turn them into masterpieces by building layers on top of them. You will learn how to use stories and patter to create meaning in your magic. You will go from being the person who "knows a few cool tricks", to changing someones life with your performances. That is my goal, and I will do everything I can to make sure I deliver on that promise.

Bonus Week - How To Never Be Forgotten

This is THE most important piece of information that you need to know if you want to be a powerful, successful magician. The ability to never be forgotten is one that many magicians don't put enough time into learning. They usually say "hope you liked what you saw, here is my business card bla bla bla" Terrible. In this bonus video, I'll show you my secret techniques that I use at the end of my performances to make me stand out, be interesting, and have the audience not only never forget me but want to contact me afterwards.


For our inception course last year I did LIVE sessions with the students. THIS YEAR, each student will get access to these lives on a weekly basis. Each live is about 3 hours in length on average. It is here where I go over each weeks material adding bonuses and thoughts that weren't in the official instructional content.
