Mr. Young was an incredible man to learn from. After taking 3 lessons from him I could tell that he has a rich history in music and teaching and has a legitimate love for music. I had to discontinue my lessons due to a move out of state but i would recommend him to anyone.

Dan teaches not only techniques of magic, but also how to build a persona during performances. Highly recommend!
Corey
Our son (12 yrs old) has been receiving weekly lessons from Daniel since June. Daniel is a phenomenal and knowledgeable magician, is enthusiastic, works well with children, and was flexible when we rescheduled a lesson due to summer vacation plans. Our son leaves every class with a new skill or trick and we like that Daniel asks our son to practice or review skills/tricks/videos before his next class. Our son has improved his magic skills as well as widened his magic trick repertoire.
Flo
Great first lesson with Daniel. Ready for tomorrow!

My 6 year old son has a talent show coming up and I was hoping to find a magic teacher to give him some confidence and ideas for a routine. During the first lesson, Mike was showing him not only magic, but performer's tips to get the audience engaged and laughing. We've got several more weeks until the show and we're going to take advantage of everything Mike has to share. We highly recommend Mike!

He's patient with my 6 year old and he's very knowledgeable.

Mike was awesome with my 9 year old. I was amazed after one 30 min session what my child learned. I highly recommend Mike.

Magic isn't just a mystery or puzzle to be figured out...Its a performing art (actually one of the variety arts) that designed to entertain. But most importantly, it should be FUN: a delight to both learn & master!

What type of magic would you like to perform for your friends & family? Stage or platform magic (sometimes called Parlor or Cabaret)? Mentalism or mind-reading? How about close-up magic (like cards & coins): Is that your thing? No matter what kind of magic we choose to explore, I've got whole library of teaching references & secret resources (all stowed away in my magic room) to share with you.

I'm Jeff, my stage name is "Mr. Jeffo" and I specialize in entertaining children & families with my own brand of magic and storytelling. I've been performing magic as a part-time pro for decades now, starting out with birthday party shows as a teen, and working my way up to performing corporate meetings, school shows, gatherings and special events over the past 15 years.

Because the lessons taught are custom-tailored to the interests and skill level of each student, you are guaranteed to have a fun lesson.

I'm Dan, a teacher who firmly believes that, "You should learn what you want to learn." Relying on experience gained as both a Junior and Adult member of Magic Castle, I bring only the best tried-and-tested material that you, and your audiences, will love. If you wish to have a specific focus in the art of magic:
-Peformance (styles varying from close-up to strolling magic)
-Props (cards, coins, etc.) and Management
-Theory (stages and forms of rhetoric)
-Misdirection

You've come to the right place.

NOTE: Because I have a firm belief in my lessons planned, and aim for transparency with each student, It should be noted that:

"In addition to the lesson, some lessons may be accompanied by a set of notes ."

These notes will help to facilitate good practice, and cover any minor/specific issues in regards to technique and/or ...

"As a 70 year old professor/author I have always wanted to learn a magic trick to entertain because I've so enjoyed the wonderful illusions and slight-of-hand magic of performers like Daniel Chan. I never knew it would be so affordable to have someone with his level of professionalism actually teach me. I just had my first lesson and can honestly say I can't wait for the second one. His devotion to theory and is ability to make it practical are remarkable."
