Live virtual group magic lessons for young magicians ages 8-16 that focus on performance, making friends, and student growth.
From the very first class, they will be excited to share their new magic with you.
Magic 101 is one of the entry points to joining our school. We get that virtual lessons aren't for everyone and we want to give new students an opportunity to try us out. This class is a great introduction to performing magic for students ages 8-11 and 12-17 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.
The first lesson is FREE to new students, just register for one of the dates through the registration link below. We'll send you the Zoom link and materials list on the day.
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.
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.
Teachers report that incorporating magic into their curriculum encourages students to help one another, and increases leadership, socialization, peer relationships, and collaboration.
Learning from a magic kit or YouTube can sometimes be frustrating for new magicians. At School of Magic Arts we crafted a program that keeps kids coming back for more.
School of Magic Arts instructors are experts in their fields. We have cardsharps, mentalists, coin wizards, theater makers, and more. Our Head Magicians (and SOMA Founders), Annie Montone and Brian Kehoe, are professional magicians who have developed a program that has helped hundreds of students achieve their dreams of performing stage magic.
We want to make sure your young magician loves our classes before you commit.
Yes! You don't have to be extroverted to enjoy and excel at magic. In fact, we've found that our program helps shy students build confidence.
SOMA classes are just 45 minutes a week, with 10 minutes of practice required a day, easy to fit into a busy schedule. And since the classes are virtual, drive time is eliminated!
We understand. Unfortunately, in the panic of the pandemic, a lot of educational programs tried to adapt their in-person curriculums for online. And it just didn't work. Students and teachers alike were frustrated. At SOMA, our program was developed exclusively for virtual learning. We've found that magic is especially well suited to be taught in an online environment; each student gets an up-close view of the instructors' hands, making the class easy to follow.
YouTube is a fantastic resource, but there are a lot of things it can't do. While it can be great for learning tricks, it can't give a student feedback on their work, help them find opportunities to perform in their communities, or curate effects that will work for their style and ability. And it doesn't provide a live community of magicians who share their enthusiasm for magic!
Sign your young magician up for a School of Magic Arts trial class and see them shine when they share their new magic with you.
