[for Beginners]

Here we have collected those products which we recommend for the beginner magician. This would be somebody who is just starting out in magic, who has perhaps seen a magician live or on TV who would like to learn the craft and perform magic or actually aspires to become a professional magician.

Not everybody has the opportunity to be mentored by a master magician. Reading (e)books, practicing and performing are the primary means to acquire the necessary skills. Go easy on watching DVDs or YouTube videos. Watching too many videos early in your development as magician will make it a lot harder to develop your own personality and find your own unique persona as magician.
