I’m 36 and simply questioning if I’m too previous to get into magic? If not what form of factor ought to I be practising, I want to begin up shut road magic, misdirection card magic, that form of factor. Not likely positive the place to begin. Thanks – Craig
You’re 100% not too previous to get into magic my buddy… I do know a LOT of nice card magicians that began to study of their fifties or sixties as soon as they'd retired. You’re nonetheless a spring hen… In reality, as a result of many of the ability is in your presentation, it means your life expertise works in your favour, and you'll command extra management and a focus out of your viewers
Living proof. Paul Daniels was 39 when he obtained his massive break. That offers you over 3 years of strong follow earlier than it’s your flip… Loads of time 🙂
Critically although. Get out of your head about it.. Simply study nice methods one by one and have enjoyable..
So, For those who agree with me that you're NOT too previous to get into magic, You too predominant approaches:
1)You may Give attention to simple self-working strategies and presenting them in an entertaining means
2) Deal with sleight of hand that that's going to require a whole lot of work to grasp the mechanics ON TOP of presenting the methods in an entertaining means.
Both means is ok.. or maybe you'll do some of each… It doesn’t matter!
The ONLY necessary result's that you've got some magic you could carry out nicely that different individuals discover entertaining to observe. Being caught up on the strategies you employ, is like not seeming the wooden for the bushes.. Magicians carry out magic, relatively than strategies.
Personally, I’d choose a number of self working methods to start with. Overlook about studying sleight of hand for a number of months and simply grasp two or three methods which are very simple to do. Choose up a Svengali deck, or a Cap and Coin Monte set. Maybe go for one thing like off world. Simple strategies to get you going.. Then a number of months later, add in a way. The Elmsley depend maybe…
For those who want to begin a course of sleight of hand immediately, possibly go for a structured studying system. I’d begin with the sleight of hand inexperienced persons course right here: https://www.magicshop.co.uk/sleight-of-hand-for-beginners-dvd-training-course
