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)

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 performance(s). I can't guarantee notes for every lesson, (as they take over an hour to write in clear detail, and I have multiple students), but I will do so where possible.

Feel free to ask any questions!


About Daniel P.

The King of Magic Teaching is back!!! My name is Dan. I have been teaching magic for 5+ years and am currently a former member of Magic Castle, Hollywood. Though during my time at the Castle, I achieved the rare and coveted status of being a Future Stars Performer, in addition to being a Record-Holder there for most shows as a former junior member. I use my background, including my B.A. in the field of Communications, to give students a very easy to understand, but powerful, lessons in magic adapted to the interests and needs that suit them. I excel in all areas of close-up magic, and have a very strong background both in performance and literature of magic.

If you're ready to learn with the BEST magic teacher in California (and possibly the world), let's get to it.

Note 1: As with everything going on, I need to confirm that my lessons are currently ONLINE only. It wont change the way the lesson is taught, in fact some students prefer online as they have quick access to the resources I send them in companion with the lesson plan.

Note 2: My rate is a bit more than other performers as I truly spend 3 HOURS with each lesson specifically geared to the students needs. 1 hour of individual planning for the student, 1 hour for the actual lesson, 1 hour sending them personal typed notes, in addition to usually video material of other top performers performing that routine, so there is no question the quality in the lesson(s). When people say it was a great lesson, I put my HEART AND SOUL into that lesson!!! hahaha

My son is 13 and has really enjoyed the lessons so far. If he decides to pursue Magic, we will continue working with Daniel because he is knowledgeable and shares a lot of resources.

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.

So I work in graphic arts, and I thought it'd be cool to expand beyond my boundaries and try something new...maybe impress my bosses at work, maybe the ladies... ;) . Daniel was very professional and the lessons are very fun. I cant recommend him enough. Book him, and have fun!

Daniel is a great instructor for kids. He's really patient and has a great sense of humor. My son really learned a lot and had a great time! We are taking a break for a while, but we will definitely use Daniel as an instructor again. I highly recommend him!

Dan was easy to work with based on my son's experience. He adapted when we had computer glitches. My son is excited to learn more.

Daniel was great! I wasn't sure how an online lesson would be but it was totally effective. He's a really nice guy and had a lot patience with me as I had no experience at all.
