Advancing Technique

Once students have a firm understanding of a wide variety of illusions, it’s time to refine their technique.  They begin learning more advanced effects that require more detailed and quick handling, particularly in card, coin, and silk magic.

Students in this course receive a new supply kit with materials that allow for even more magic!

Learning Goals
Use new, secret devices to enhance magic students already know as well as learn how to link tricks together into routines.

Fuel your preteen’s love of magic

We understand the challenge of finding magic tricks suitable for preteens that strike the perfect balance of satisfaction and entertainment.

Our magic has been carefully curated to unearth the most enjoyable and challenging tricks tailored specifically for this age group. Our group lessons allow students to interact with each other to build social skills.  

The magic supply kit includes a standard deck of cards, a 12 inch black silk, magician's rope, four sponge balls, two rubber bands, a coin, a small notebook, and pencil.

Private Lesson Course

If none of the schedules above work for you, we do offer Fundamentals of Magic as a private course. The cost is the same as our group classes, but you can choose the day and time that works for you. These classes run 30-40 minutes because we can go faster with one student. We have limited availability for these lessons. Contact brian@encountermagic.com to set up a time.

Build Self esteem and confidence

Studies have found that all students (including those with learning difficulties, behavioral challenges, and physical disabilities) exhibit greater self-esteem scores after studying and performing magic.

improve hand eye coordination

In a study of forty people studying magic, all showed significant improvement in both the use of the left and right hands, and their ability to use both hands together.

grow with support of a community

Teachers report that incorporating magic into their curriculum encourages students to help one another, and increases leadership, socialization, peer relationships, and collaboration.
