Kevin Kapinos is a Brooklyn, NY based magician and card expert. Upon his moving from Chicago to New York in 2014, he quickly became a regular performer on A Taste of Magic and Monday Night Magic, New York's two highest rated and longest running magic shows.

Lessons can specialize in starting in magic, fundamental techniques, theory, building repertoire and routines, and performance. Furthermore, Kevin is the only magician in the New York area offering lessons in gambling sleight of hand technique. Learning magic has never been easy, but lessons offer you the guidance you need to grow at your own pace and develop in areas that interest you.

In my heart, I'm a huge magic nerd, which is why I love working with students and helping them develop both as technicians and performers. In the five years that I've been teaching lessons, I've helped my students construct routines for their school talent shows, create close-up magic shows for their families, and even pass auditions into reputable magic organizations and shows. While the secrets to magic are all over the internet, I'm very detail oriented, so in lessons, I focus on the "real-work" of magic. I make sure that you don't just learn the general idea of a trick, but you learn the important details about where to put your pinky, how to block angles, where to shift your gaze, and how to create a magical experience. Magic can be frustrating since secrecy is at odds with learning, which is why a teacher is vital for magical development.
