How to practice and study magic

We’ll be 100% honest, we’re pretty good at magic – but we’re not absolute masters. 

We’ve put in the hours, and every single day we’re doing something to do with magic. 

But when we jam with the real pros – they still blow us away with some of the stuff they can do without even thinking about it! 

Their intuitive mastery of magic is something to be admired and a level we hope you and I can achieve within the Inner Circle. 

In this week’s Inner Circle audio training we go over how to practice and study magic, and it includes such nuggets as: 

  • Why @sleightlyobsessed NEVER practices a move in front of the TV (and why maybe you shouldn’t either!) 
  • The tip Danny Goldsmith gave us in a private session that teaches you to ‘game’ the way you make a move muscle memory. 
  • A full look into our weekly practice schedule (that you can feel free to steal)

Our practice schedlue:

Monday: one hour of focused classic magic book study.

NOTES: when it comes to magic, we seriously believe that it’s NEVER effective to study more than one thing at a time.

You’ll get distracted, and while you might be able to learn multiple effects/routines, they all end up being mediocre instead of exceptional.

If you’re wondering what books we study, we’re currently making our way back through our list of 91 magic books we produced commentary for earlier this year.

 

  • Additional study: mem deck and coin drills.


Tuesday: one hour of focused coin magic study.

NOTES: when it comes to coin magic we have infinite great resources as we’re friends with Zee, Danny Goldsmith, and the boys at Copeland.

Again, we focus on ONE move or ONE routine for that entire time.

 

  • Additional study: mem deck and coin drills.


Wednesday: one hour of focused mem deck study.

NOTES: seeing as we’ve produced literally MILLIONS of words in mem deck content, we actually just study our own stuff.

We don’t want to forget any of it, and it’s good to know it inside out to help those learning it.

(we ALSO love the work of Simon Aronson, Juan Tamariz, Dani Daortiz, Pit Hartling, Denis Behr…)

 

  • Additional study: mem deck and coin drills.


Thursday: one hour of focused classic magic book study.

NOTES: If you’re wondering what books we study, we’re currently making our way back through our list of 91 magic books we produced commentary for earlier this year.

 

  • Additional study: mem deck and coin drills.


Friday: one hour of magic courses.

NOTES: We literally have 100’s of magic courses just lying around given to us for FREE from various sources.

On Friday we like to dig into these, from penguin lectures to mentalism fork bending – we take one of these and give it our full attention.

 

  • Additional study: mem deck and coin drills.


Saturday & Sunday: jam on ANYTHING.

We’re very lucky to be in constant contact with each other, so Saturday and Sunday are the days we just have fun at The Daily Magician.

Nothing is off limits, no idea is stupid – this is a day for pure improvisation and creation.

We find that our Classic Magic Book collection is almost ALWAYS the best place to start with both finding and creating incredible original magic.

  • Additional study: NONE.
