“What kind of magic do you teach?”

The effects we teach are general magic tricks that utilize normal, everyday objects such as coins, paper, books, napkins, etc. In this manner, students don’t have to buy any special props. Everything is available at home. We have researched thousands of magic effects to find and develop the ones that offer the most potential for metaphorical life lessons and valuable presentational possibilities. We tell the students that we will show them “our magic” if they will show us theirs. This magic within them includes experiences, ideas, feelings, dreams and goals.

“Are the magic tricks hard?”

The effects we teach are appropriate for the age and skill levels of each class. However, without practice (Commitment to excellence), as with any artistic endeavor, the end result will reflect their dedication. A good rule of thumb is to practice each trick until it can be performed twenty times without mistakes. Then, for the twenty-first time, in front of an audience, the potential of a mistake is minimized. This discipline can translate to other endeavors like sports, hobbies, and education.

“How much does this program cost?”

Each Learning is M.A.G.I.C. program costs less than you might guess and includes a professional magic show, twenty-six hours of student instruction, three planning meetings, a parent workshop, a staff-development workshop, and unparalleled support. In addition, it’s the only program of its kind in the country! No one else even comes close! Call us at 818-549-9101 for more information.

“Can parents learn with their children?”

Since many of our programs take place in school, this is not practical. But we do include a parent workshop called Parenting is M.A.G.I.C. that teaches parents valuable strategies to positively develop the relationship with their kids. We even include a few magic tricks to perform for the family! Read more about this on our Programs page.

“Do you offer programs after school or during the summer?”

Yes! Learning is M.A.G.I.C. is a great program for after school because it’s both academic and fun. Kids enjoy learning skills that other peers might not be able to do and they love being able to share unique knowledge with the uninitiated. Programs between school years (or intercessions) are also a wonderful way to occupy students’ time when not in the classroom.

“Are customized programs available for unique requirements?”

Absolutely! We are always looking for new offerings, and would love to discuss your special needs.

“Is this program all magic?”

Not at all! Remember our acronym? M.A.G.I.C. is Making a plan, Acting without Fear, Growing as a person, Imagining without limits, and a Commitment to excellence. Each of our sessions includes activities, games, writing exercises and a magic effect that utilize these necessary skills. Our program succeeds according to the individual contributions of each student. Our job is to provide a fun and encouraging atmosphere so that they feel comfortable sharing their own special magic.

“Must a student’s English be good to participate in this program?”

While the program is taught in English, we have bilingual teachers available to help ease the language burden. However, even if a student’s English is not proficient, our program is designed to aid in language acquisition. Additionally, magic is a universal art that can be performed and enjoyed by everyone, regardless of culture.

“What grades does this program serve?”

Learning is M.A.G.I.C. is designed for grades 3 to 12. Each grade is different and results in contributions from each student that are appropriate to their academic level.

“How often does the program meet?”

A typical program meets for two hours twice a week (i.e. Tuesdays and Thursdays or Wednesdays and Fridays) either during the class day or after school.

“Do you offer Saturday programs?”

Yes! A typical Saturday program meets for four hours each week and provides a wonderful opportunity for positive and consistent weekend activity.

“How many students are in each program?”

“Do you teach magic tricks like they perform on TV?”

The magic effects in our program utilize principles and techniques that are used by professionals the world over, including Criss Angel, David Blaine, David Copperfield, and others. We teach students that the “G” in our acronym (Growing as a person) means sharing yourself—stories, ideas, experiences, etc. Thus, every magic performance by each student will be unique and unlike any other magician. The result is pride borne of individuality.

“Does Learning is M.A.G.I.C. adhere to California educational standards?”
