Will the tricks be different than the ones that you teach at my local
Yes. The tricks that
I mail you will always be completely different than the ones that I give out at my park district classes. You will never
get the same tricks! So if you want magic on a more regular basis, you'll definitely want to do my park district classes
AND this mail order program.
What is in the magic sets, and when will I receive them?
Each set will have approximately 8 high quality tricks and challenges in them.
You'll get store-bought tricks, card tricks, coin tricks, brainteasers, optical illusions, and much more magic. And
these sets will be mailed to you the first week of each month.
Can I just try it once to see if I like it?
Absolutely. If you want to sample the program, you can pay for just one
month. No commitment needed. And if you're having fun, you can then sign up for multiple months (for cost savings).
Or you can continue to order one month at a time.
How will children learn the tricks, and what ages are the tricks appropriate
I keep signing up for magic classes if I take them at my local park district?
Absolutely. Since these "Magic by Mail" tricks are always different than the
tricks given at the park districts, I encourage you to keep going to the park district each time they offer my class.
These “Magic by Mail" tricks are not meant to replace the park district classes. They are meant for children
that want more and more magic.
Why are you offering this program?
(1) There are very few places for children
to buy magic nowadays. So this program allows children a way to get magic on a regular basis.
(2) If you get a magic set from somewhere else, the tricks may not be age-appropriate
and the written instructions are often very difficult to understand. This frustrates many children and causes some to
quit learning the tricks. To prevent this from happening, I wanted to design a program where children could learn magic
in a fun and easy way at home.
always tell me that they can't wait
for my next park district class. But the wait between my classes is sometimes a few months.
Or sometimes the classes are held on a night that you can't attend. Now children won't have to wait a long time for
new tricks, since this program allows them to get new magic each month.
What are Gary's qualifications as a magic teacher?
I currently teach magic classes at over 135 park districts. I have been teaching these classes for over
15 years, and have taught magic to over 70,000 children. My teaching style is very kid-friendly, and I make sure to always provide
fun and age-appropriate tricks. And
in addition to teaching how the tricks work, I also explain how to perform the tricks in front of others by carefully going
over the words to say when performing in front of an audience. I am also a school social worker during the day.
