Learn impromptu magic, it’s the missing piece of your magicians training.
Tahmid writes: I’m a 17 year old in my last year of school and I really struggle with dealing with the kind of people who say ‘show me more’ or just out of the blue ‘show me a magic trick’. Most of the time I’m not ready to show them something and find it difficult to get out of those situations. Some tips would be great!
The difficulty you are facing is quite common. A lot of magicians, being keen and wanting fast progress, start building up their working knowledge of magic focusing on tricks that require gimmicks and props. There’s a problem. If you were stopped in the street and asked to show someone a magic trick, what would you do? Are you the sort of person that never leaves the house without a pocket full of props? What would you do if you got caught out without a deck of cards, TT, or coin gimmicks on you?
Tahmid, you don’t ever need to make an excuse for not being able to perform.. There is no need do tips and lines to let those people down.. You need to learn impromptu magic, so you are ready to amaze anytime.
Why it’s vital that you build an impromptu magic repertoire.
You don’t need many, and you don’t need a lot of money because props don’t come into it.. 5 or 6 tricks that you have practiced and rehearsed properly, so they can be presented carefully and professionally to be as entertaining as your main working material.
If you don’t have this… Take the time RIGHT AWAY to magic the COMMITMENT to start learning this ‘set’ of material.
You’re a magician.. You should be able to perform magic at any moment, anywhere.. There is NO EXCUSS for failing to perform because you ‘don’t have anything with you’.
