I just received an email from a part-time magician who attended my lecture and watched my DVDs. Perhaps his thoughts will help you in your decision-making process regarding the purchase of "The Art of Presenting Magic to Children."
I attended your recent lecture and must tell you that it was more insightful and helpful than most lectures I
have attended during my journey as a performer. I became a clown 12 years ago, as an outlet to complement
a career in the world of finance. Having the mask of a clown has allowed me to transition to situations that
I would never have dreamed possible. Of late, I have been solicited to do more and more magic. I can
easily do walk around but to perform a show has been frustrating from several points of view, the biggest
being capturing attention and controlling the audience, in addition to building an act. I have studied your dvds and had the best magic performance of my career today. From the very start, when I did my magician's exercises,I had the nursery school audience. The taped Xs on the floor was brilliant.
I identified myself in you, a Type A person, analytical and very thorough, who seeks to excel in his performance. Your demeanor resonated in me, as opposed to other styles of performing. I
realize that years of experience, and making mistakes is a huge teacher, but your open format is not only accelerating my learning curve, but exhilarating my enthusiasm. I am not
familiar with your credentials, all I know is that as a gentle, soft spoken performer and sharing lecturer, you have made a difference.
I look forward to sharing continued success with you.
