Celebrity magicians such as David Copperfield, David Blaine, Derren Brown, Criss Angel, Dynamo the magician and many others now perform magic on television. This has resulted in an increasing number of people being interested in learning the art of magic. But let’s be honest, we want to perform magic so we can pretend to be superheroes.

You can go see a professional magician performing live and request the person to train you on the art of magic.

However, ensure that you first watch an uncut video of the instructor performing in front of a live audience before committing.
2. Magic Is A 3-Sided Triangle
While everyone loves to focus on the ‘tricks’ other sides of the triangle are important too. Some of the greatest magicians in the world usually perform no more than 10 tricks but have totally mastered them. All it takes is a few really good illusions to blow the minds of your audience. Always remember to master all sides of the triangle to be effective.
