Studies have shown practicing the art of magic helps students to build key qualities like self-discipline, self-confidence and interpersonal abilities. In fact, scientists frequently study magicians’ techniques to gain new insight into how the human mind works. The Discover Magic course is an educational program specifically designed to teach not just magic, but how to interact successfully with other people. In fact, it’s best described as a life skills course camouflaged to look like a magic lesson. Kids become so engrossed and entertained in learning and performing the magic tricks they don’t realize they’re also developing incredibly valuable communication skills. Indeed, many opportunities for performing magic tricks arise later in adulthood, whether as an ice breaker for a businessman or a doctor who uses magic tricks to put their young patients at ease.
Every Discover Magic class features custom created props, one of the Traits of a True Magician, Top Secret Private files for every child and even special Bonus material the kids can unlock with a secret code after class. The tricks taught are specially designed for small hands and first-time learners, that will not only fool adults, but will develop and unlock exciting possibilities in every child.
