Oct 13, 2007
So you want to learn how to do magic tricks and wow all your friends and family.

Well this article is all about how you can learn how to do magic tricks fast.

First of all it should be said that all magic is merely an act of 'illusion'.

I'm sure that you've heard of the saying that the hand is quicker than the eye, well that is exactly what you are practicing whenever you do a magic trick - slight of hand!

Yes, it's possible to use all kinds of props but at ulimately these are just serve as elaborate distractions, allowing you to 'set up' the end result.

If you really want to learn how to do magic tricks you should first become familiar with different kinds of magic tricks you can perform.

For example there are card tricks, coin tricks, string tricks, tricks with bottles, money and matches, you name it. However these are the basic magic tricks.

If you really want to wow your friends and family or perhaps would like to pursue magic as a profession, then you will want to learn how to do magic tricks that are so awesome that your audience will think you have supernatural mind powers.

For example, imagine if you could perform magic illusions such as levitation, mind reading, hypnotism, how to make objects disappear and reappear, bending spoons and keys etc just like Criss Angel and David Blaine do on T.V.

These advanced magic tricks can really be learned and performed by anyone. All you need is the 'how to' magic secrets and some practice. Remember, all magic tricks are illusions, so there is a logical sequence of actions behind of every singal magic trick.

For example, say you want to make a coin disappear from the palm of your hand. Here's how you do it step by step:

1) Start this magic coin trick with a coin in the centre of your palm up hand.

2) Keep the coin secure in your palm by pressing the coin into the center of your palm with the fleshy part under your thumb.

3) Making it very obvious, pretend to throw the coin into your other hand and then close it as if it caught the coin.

4) As you do this remove your other hand that actually holds the coin.

All the attention of your audience is focused on the hand that caught the coin and of course when you open it, the coin is gone.

Now this is a very simple magic trick but the secret to learn how to do magic tricks fast is to break them down into their simple steps and then just practicing them so that you can execute them flawlessly.

In fact, just with this basic 'slight of hand' technique you can come up with lots of your own magic tricks. Obviously the smaller the object, the easier it is disguise what you are doing.

The secret to almost every magic trick is to successfully divert your audience's attention while you subtly place your object into it's final position.

That is the art of illusion, the art of magic!
