Card College 1 & 2 Personal Instruction by Roberto Giobbi

#1 in [DVD (download+stream)] hot-list

These are 8 hours of personal video instructions from Roberto Giobbi. This is almost like taking private lessons from Roberto. It is a one-to-one coaching from one of the world's premier card experts, who is considered by his peers to be one of today's finest and most influential teachers of magic.

"I was extremely impressed. Giobbi is an excellent teacher, he communicates his ideas clearly, and he's passionate about card magic - this is one of the best card magic DVD sets I've come across in recent memory. It contains a tremendous amount of solid material for beginning and even seasoned performers, and it's a perfect companion to Giobbi's terrific Card College book series." - Jason England in Magic Magazine
This course originally sold as a set of 4 DVDs. It is now available at very little cost as a download. This is a full video course (no ebook/PDF) as compared to Card College 1 & 2 which is a PDF with almost 200 short video clips demonstrating each move. Contents wise these two editions overlap to a good part. (Refer to the table of contents below for more details.) If you are primarily a visual learner then you will probably want to get these video instructions. If you prefer reading you will probably benefit more from the PDF edition.

The beauty and elegance of Roberto Giobbi's Card College course is that within a few minutes of learning fundamental techniques for handling cards, you will advance to tricks that can entertain and fool sophisticated audiences. Roberto not only demonstrates and explains the primary techniques of card magic, quickly giving you the ability and skills you need for performance, but also shares the wealth of his experience, based on years of successful performing. And if you're already a pro you'll find advanced material, moves, sleights and psychology to enhance your performance and shows.
