Stars of their Shows

Our magic school gives students the tools and confidence they need to succeed as they take to the stage. When our magicians go out into their neighborhoods and schools to perform, we know our program is working. And they know a whole community has their backs!

The Magic School

In weekly classes with live instructors, students learn techniques and effects from different magic disciplines: cards, coins, sleight of hand, mentalism, and lots more. As they level up, they develop a distinct style, and even better, participate in our live virtual shows that are great practice for in-person magic performances.

This class is a great introduction to performing magic for students who are just starting out, or who are interested in learning more about how School of Magic Arts virtual lessons work.

Taught by live instructors, Magic 1o1 focuses on multiple types of magic with materials you can easily find in your home!  In each lesson students learn a new magic effect and have an opportunity to talk with a professional magician.
