Do you want to do magic acts but you don’t know where to start? Well your problems are solved right here! Learn where to start, how to practice, how to share you’re tricks to others, and how to organize your acts.
Where Do I Start?
A good place to start your magic is at your local magic shop. When you find your local magic shop, have a talk with the magician and see what kind of magic would be appropriate for you. Tell him that you need some tips and pointers to start out. You can also have him show you a couple of tricks to start you out. Possibly the magician will let you try a couple of tricks. This will help you get started.
A magician who buys gimmicked magic is not a true magician. An example of gimmicked magic is a deck of cards that are marked and have to be in a certain order and set up a certain way. Gimmicked magic is not as mysterious. Your audience may not be as interested with gimmicked magic. They already may be familiar with this type of magic and may get bored quickly. People may ask you if you know how to do real magic.
Here are some tips when practicing your magic.
Sharing Your Magic
After you know some magic and you are confident in yourself, here are some helpful tips in sharing your magic. The mystery is a big part of the magic trick.
Ok, now it is time for your show. You need to put some tricks together for your performance. You might want to go to a nearby magic shop and have a magician watch you perform a magic trick that you will be performing in the show. When you are going to do a trick, always plan ahead of time to keep the audience’s attention. Ask for a volunteer from the audience if your trick needs one.
Just like books and movies, there is a beginning, middle, and an end. All of your tricks should flow into one another. Your first trick should grab the audience’s attention. The second trick should be more exciting than the first trick to make the audience very interested. It is always nice to do some funny tricks in between tricks to make the audience laugh a little. The last trick should make the people want to come back to another performance.
Your show can be different lengths. It depends on the kind of audience. This can be determined by many factors.
