    Coming Back From a Long Break

    Hey guys, After taking over a year off from magic, aside from several mediocre performances for family-friends, I have decided to come back. I saw Penn & Teller last night and it gave me that magic bug again. I initially left magic because it started to feel like "work" instead of being a fun...

    Stay away from YouTube... find some good books and have someone in your family try and help you understand what's being said. Sometimes you have to read a simple part several times to get it, the more you read, the more you'll get used to it. If that fails, feel free to check out...

    Don't bother with the whole YouTube thing, grab some books/DVDs! What I learned personally is that when you start learning from books first, DVDs are a cake. Also... books usually have a lot of more tricks/sleights and are cheaper than a DVD. If you want feedback on tricks, make a video and show...

    Having a mentor is awesome -- you can get professional feedback and advice on pretty much everything. In addition, if your mentor's nice, they'll usually pass on old books or dvds onto you.

    Agreed, and disagreed. My dad had a highschool education and went quite far like that -- at the same time -- he's very much against me not going to university; people who drop out of highschool/don't go to post-sec usually do it because of money issues or are on the verge of making a huge...

    Tight Situation

    Like a lot of the other posts recommended, manage your audience. If you don't know how to manage an audience, go to a mall, or some other public place, and start performing. The more you perform, the more you'll be able to manage your audience.
