I am a full time professional magician with over 30 years of experience and over 15 years working as a full time pro. I will walk you through each and every step making sure that you not only understand how to perform a specific sleight or magic trick but WHY you do the particular moves or scripting when you do. I have a BFA in Theater Arts and use my training to help you understand the performance element of magic. Even if you are only performing for one friend, a well performed trick is better than and poorly performed one.

MAGIC SCHOOL BY INTERNET?....WHY THIS IS AN AMAZING TRICK IN ITSELF! Matias (with modern technology) has the teaching skills and passion for Magic which will somehow "magically" disappear into the web and appear on your own computer screen and the teaching will begin. You will be amazed as you use your Virus Downtime to begin the fun of sharing magic with your family and friends.
Dee
Matias is a wonderful and fun teacher. He opens the world of "magic" to his students and teaches with patience and kindness. He builds self confidence in his students as they master tricks and illusions based on their skill level. He just makes one happy while learning. I highly recommend him. You won't be disappointed.
Elizabeth
Such a good teacher and really lays the foundation for a solid performance rather than just teaching trick after trick. Thank you!

"So I met Daniel a long while back. Background is that I am a retired cop who wants to break out of his comfort zone. At the time, Daniel was much younger, but he still knew his chops. What I liked is how right after we learned something, he would then do the trick for random individuals at the coffee shop to show the style, and way it should be performed. Heck, I was even able to impress my wife with a couple of his tricks.
I recommend him."
