Magic 101

Give a young magician a chance to try magic the School of Magic Arts way.

Do you have an exceptional kid who might be looking for their hobby, their interest, their "thing"?  Maybe magic is it!  At School of Magic Arts, we have virtual classes for young magicians from ages 7-17 (so it doesn't matter where you are geographically).  Never taken a group magic class before and don't know what to expect?  That's what "Magic 101" is for!  

Magic 101 is a "Pay What You Decide" trial class developed to show new students how SOMA works, what they can expect to learn, and how much fun magic can be.  Sign up for a Magic 101 class now!

- Scissors

  • Appropriate for ages 7-17
  • 45- min live virtual instruction
  • Small group instruction
  • Use materials you have at home
  • No experience level required
  • Pay what you decide

Meet The Head Magicians

School of Magic Arts was founded in 2017 by professional magicians  Annie Montone (she/her) and Brian M. Kehoe (he/him) of The Encounter. Annie and Brian love magic, but saw something missing in stage magic education. Instead of just "teaching tricks," they wanted to encourage personal growth and connections by teaching magic technique and performance in a safe, inclusive, student-focused environment. In the last four years, SOMA has welcomed hundreds of students and participants (of all ages, all over the world) to our virtual magic classes, lessons, workshops, shows, and camps. Welcome to SOMA. You belong, here.

Magicians The Encounter sit side by side. Brian sits on the left wearing a burgundy colored velvet jacket, white dress shirt, and pink floral bowtie. Annie sits on the right in a burgundy dress with black sequins. The front part of her hair is curled and turquoise colored. She wears a pink feather in her hair.
“Brian and Annie are remarkable instructors who combine their infectious joy for magic with immeasurable patience, kindness, and support for their students.”
- Barbara F. SOMA Parent
