What will he teach?
Fire Coins- A perfect opener for your show where the magician plucks a flame from a candle and transforms it into coins. Then, one at a time each coin vanishes. A musical routine that can be performed both in person or online.
TriSandwich- A hyper visual routine where 3 cards appear between the jokers under impossible conditions. Very easy to do, and extremely magical.
Money Flies- Based on a Doug Bennett effect where a signed coin appears within the layers of a book of matches. Martin teaches his handling and how to make the gimmick yourself at home.
52!- A strong, easy to do prediction effect that can be the final piece of any act. Based on Shuffle Bored by Simon Aronson, it’s a classic of magic. The spectators shuffle cards face up and face down and although the magician never touches the deck, the prediction matches.
Time- Martin’s take on the classic McDonald’s Aces routine. Aces appear, travel and finally vanish. It is a visual and poetic piece that is a powerful addition to any repertoire.
Gypsy Thread- You will learn how to perform this special effect by candle light, making it an even more memorable routine for your audiences.
Theory- Martin intelligently discusses topics such as: Why and how to choose your effects, the order in which you perform them, and how this choice affects the relationship between the magician and the spectators.
