Learn magic can be tough. Magicians practice for years to get their tricks down, and sometimes, it also requires a fair bit of talent. However, a lot of people, from little kids all the way up to big adults, want to learn magic. So then, you may be asking yourself, how do I learn magic? What's the best way of going about it?
Well, the first tip I can give you is to start out with some simple tricks or videos. Of course, at first, learning these tricks will be challenging. Sleight of hand can take years to master. To start, though, We have a selection of card tricks that are easy to learn and master. Each of these tricks has a video that shows you how the trick works, along with a description of the trick, which should give you an idea of how hard it is to perform. Keep in mind that some of these are easier than others (for example, the hummer floating card trick can take some practice to do the hard moves with it, but tricks like crazy cards can be really simple to learn) but they all can be learned with time. It'll take quite a bit of patience, but eventually, you'll get there.
That brings me to my second trick: persistence. When you're out to learn magic, it probably won't happen instantly. That means you'll have to be patient, and like any other skill, it'll require a lot of persistence. Don't get down if you can't learn to do something right away. Ask another magician, or watch another instructional video, and eventually it'll click. This is especially true with tricks involving a lot of sleight of hand, such as the folding coin trick. Although this trick isn't hard to do, it is hard to pass the fake coin into your hand without the audience seeing it. If you're persistent with it, though, you'll eventually see yourself starting to develop some smoothness with your actions.
Which brings up my third point: practice. Along with the patience factor, you're going to have to practice things before you get them right. When you were learning to tie your shoes, or to read, did you learn these things instantly? No, of course not! You practiced. Practice isn't just repeating things over and over, ether. It's doing that thing once, reviewing any mistakes you made, then trying again. Any skill requires practice, and magic is the same way. Even professional magicians practice their tricks. You'd better believe the pros like David Copperfield and Criss Angel practice before they get up on stage to do their tricks.
So just remember: Patience, persistence, practice. These should be the three P's of learning magic (or any new skill, really), because with them, anyone can become a successful magician!
