Where to Start?

“Hi Harry, my name is Greg. I’m 15 years old and have just gotten started in magic. I already have a Svengali deck  but I want to get into slight of hand magic. Do you have any suggestions where I should start?”  – Greg, Oaklhoma City, OK.

Thanks for your question Greg. While I’m not what you would call a “Card Technician”, I have performed many card tricks over the years here at the store and in my close-up show. I have always been a firm believer in getting your basics down first. I have seen many magicians who skip straight to learning a specific card trick and while it may look good, that’s all they know. When the inevitable request “Do Another One!” comes up, they’re stuck! If you have a solid foundation in card manipulation you can do hundreds of different tricks at the drop of a hat.

One of the most popular books on card tricks the is Royal Road To Card Magic. First published in 1948, this book is THE go-to for card magicians all over the world. You can probably find a copy in your local library. We sell it here at the store, as well as a wonderful 4 DVD set where every trick and effect is shown in exacting detail. Hope this helps you out Greg. I look forward to seeing your magic in the future!
