When we want to learn something new, we all have certain difficulties when we begin. But don’t worry, today I’m going to answer the question: “How to learn magic tricks for beginners?”.
This is a list of things to do to learn the magic tricks for beginners.
Determine the type of magic you want to learn
A person’s time and energy are limited. So you have to choose a few things and leave the rest.
It’s the same with learning magic tricks for beginners, you have to choose a type of magic that you like and focus your best on it.
There are many types in magic, card magic, coin magic, stage magic, etc. Choose your favorite type.
Of course, after practicing one type of magic long enough, you can practice other types of magic.
This is necessary to enrich your magic skills and knowledge.
But it is the work of the future, and for a beginner, concentrate as much on your chosen type of magic.
Identify the reason for and purpose of learning magic
Nobody does something without a reason and the same with learning magic tricks.
Determining the reason for learning magic will put you on the right track when starting to learn magic tricks.
If you learn magic for money, stage magic is an easy way to get started.
If you learn magic to flirt with women, magic tricks with cards and flowers are more than enough.
If you learn magic for fun, learn magic tricks that surprise you and have fun.
If the reason will guide you, then the purpose will motivate you, how far you go completely depends on the final purpose you set.
I don’t recommend setting a great purpose, think twice before setting a purpose.
But remember, whether you think “you can” or “you can’t”, you’re always right.
Search for magic knowledge and magic tutorial
In the next step, let’s start learning interesting and surprising magic tricks.
Depending on the needs and financial conditions, we have different options for learning magic tricks.
Learn magic tricks for free on Youtube
This is a great place to learn magic tricks, even for real magicians.
A lot of good people share their knowledge of magic on Youtube, you can learn many useful things.
However, YouTube can also distract you if you are a beginner.
A lot of magic tutorials on Youtube will ruin your basic knowledge because they do it without systematically and sometimes inaccurately.
As a beginner, you cannot distinguish and choose good sources of knowledge on Youtube.
If you just want to learn some magic tricks to flirt with women, that’s okay, but if you want to be a magician, think twice.
Learn magic tricks from DVDs, videos, ebooks, books
This is a great option, as an example, I learned magic tricks using this method.
The DVDs, videos, ebooks that I mentioned are the products published by famous magicians and sold on online magic shops.
Magic tricks are often sold without a public tutorial on YouTube and often have better effects.
For beginners to learn magic, books and ebooks are quite difficult to absorb, video is your first choice.
But remember, books and ebooks are the gathering place for the “elites” of the magic world, the best magic tricks are hidden behind the letters, not the footage.
Learn magic tricks from a professional magician
This is the best way to learn, it saves you a lot of time spent on “making mistakes” and “learning experiences”.
If I had met my first magic teacher earlier, I would have saved 2 years of my life for learning magic.
If you’re a beginner, having a professional magician teach you the basics is a necessity.
The only problem is that good thing is never cheap, the cost of hiring a magician to teach your magic tricks is not a small number.
Practicing magic tricks in the right way
Please understand this, practicing hard is not enough to help you become a good magician, the missing element here is that you have to practice properly.
Learn the details of the magic tricks
Don’t overlook the smallest details when learning a magic trick, sometimes the smallest details are the deciding factor.
Some magicians even forget to talk about the small details (because they are so used to it) but watch what they do, carefully.
This is not redundant, this is an important habit to make you learning magic tricks easily.
Practice in front of the mirror to understand angles
The angle is a very important element in magic, a magic trick that can be perfect in one angle but worse in another.
The audience does not understand this, they just need to know if your performance surprised them or not. Therefore, practice in front of the mirror to better understand what the audience will see you do.
Practice magic tricks slowly
It is often said that “Magic is hand quicker than the eye” so beginners who practice magic tricks have a habit of doing things very quickly.
This is a bad habit, quit it today, do the magic trick as slowly as possible, do it right before you do it fast.
Do not pursue the speed when practicing a magic trick, find the right way, then the speed will chase you. You will be so fast that you did not expect it.
Try to understand the principle of magic tricks, not just imitations
First to imitate, then to understand the principle, if we only imitate, we are no different from monkeys.
Every move of a magic trick, when you do it, you have to understand why you do it, don’t do it just because you see someone else doing it, you do it because you understand its cause and purpose.
This sounds easy, but it’s harder than you think, it’s what makes the biggest difference between magicians.
Performing magic tricks for everyone
Performing is the last step to learning a magic trick. It sounds weird, but you’ll learn from performing a lot, sometimes more than spending days practicing.
Therefore, after practicing a magic trick, start performing it for everyone.
Performing magic tricks in front of the camera
This is a great way for you to perform your magic tricks for millions of viewers.
Youtube is the world’s largest video sharing platform, you can share your magic performance videos with people and surprise them.
In addition, shooting a magic performance video also helps you recognize and improve your performance.
Performing magic tricks for relatives and friends
This will be the group that will laugh in your face if your performance fails.
But this is also the best audience group for you to try out your magic tricks.
Performing for your relatives and friends is like boots for a journey, you do not have the pressure and benefits to dominate, so you are completely yourself when performing.
Perform magic tricks for anyone you want
This is the hardest step, especially for those who are just beginning to learn magic tricks but go beyond it, remember that you are ready.
Performing for your customers, performing for strangers, performing for a girl you want to get acquainted with, it will make you quite nervous, even trembling and forget the magic tricks you want to do, but trust me. Go on, just go ahead and everything will be fine eventually.
And I answered the question: “How to learn magic tricks for beginners?“. Did you learn anything new?
It is interesting if we learn something new every day, which is why I have pursued my passion for magic for over 10 years.
Because to me, there is always something new in magic that I can learn every day. This is a simple way to enjoy the life I want to share with you.
