When I first started performing magic professionally, I found information was difficult to find. Everything in books were either poorly explained, dated, disorganized, or difficult to decipher. In addition, there was little rhyme or reason to the way information was laid out. There were no progressions. Currently, the best way to learn magic is live lectures and DVD's, but both assume prior knowledge of fundamentals that many do not have. The path from beginner to advance is ambiguous at best. There is no common starting point. When you learn with Dan Chan Master Magician you will create a strong foundation and bridge the knowledge gap with a clear path and progression.

Dan C. Master Magician is an internationally renowned, award-winning magician whose magic has taken him all over the world. Based in Fremont, CA; Dan is regarded as one of the nation's top corporate magicians and performs at events worldwide. Dan C. Presents is the ultimate corporate entertainment experience. In 2017 Dan performed in Las Vegas, Shanghai, and Germany for corporate clients. Find out why Buzzfeed named him Silicon Valley's Favorite Magician.

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.

Dan is a great teacher. He is patient and explains things clearly. He also encourages you to find your own style of performing. His helpful critique makes you a better performer.
