For ages: 9 - 18
Next date: None - message Mentor to express interest


Calling all aspiring young magicians! Learn how to amaze, entertain and baffle your friends and family, with stunning close-up magic. I will teach the basics of sleight of hand card magic along with some non-card tricks. I also teach students how to interact and perform with people. During this holiday period, I am offering a short course of 4 lessons to provide an intensive burst of essential techniques and tricks. The course is best taken as a block of 4 but if you have difficulty attending one of the dates please message me for a bespoke invoice. Why not give a focus to this holiday period - a great alternative to screen time, increasing concentration along with manual and mental dexterity. And it’s lots of fun! Students will love to practise the techniques in between workshops. I have successfully been teaching children aged 9 to 18 magic for the past year, which has been very well received - refs available.

About your Mentor

About your Mentor


I have been performing magic for 5 years. I have been teaching children magic for the past year, which has been very succesful and well received. I have over 10 students who have all progressed very quickly and can all perform stunning sleight of hand. I started learning magic at age 14, and it greatly helped me build my self confidence and ability to deal with social situations. Magic gives people a 'secret power' that no other skill can give you, the power to stun and amaze anyone with a moments notice! I am also a professional magician who performs at wedding receptions, parties, corporate events etc. I have been doing this for the past 5 years.

Learning aims

Be able to perform amazing sleight of hand card tricks with confidence.

Strengths to develop

Magic can help dramatically improve manual dexterity. The majority of moves I teach are sleight of hand, so students will learn how to manipulate the playing cards. I tailor the lessons to suit age and ability level. After practice, many of these sleights will become second nature.
