About Daniel C.

When I first started performing magic professionally, I found information was difficult to find. Everything in books was either poorly explained, dated, disorganized, or difficult to decipher. Besides, 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 to attend live lectures and watch 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. I will help you shave years off your learning curve. I will also save you from wasting time and money and help you to accomplish your goals.

"Although Youtube is great, I found that training with Dan saved me a lot of time - my most valuable commodity. I only wish I started earlier!"

When you learn with Dan 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 worldwide. 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.

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.

I just finished my first magic lesson with Dan. He is an extremely talented magician and provided some excellent insight into some of the foundational concepts and principles for success. I am looking forward to continuing my magic educational journey with Dan!

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.
