A Class That’s More

Than Meets The Eye

Hidden in these fun and interactive classes are simple and powerful life changing lessons.  Through the act of performing magic and working with others, your child will develop priceless communication and people skills – without even realizing it. 

Performing magic does so much more than just promote self-confidence. Throughout the program, your child will explore their creativity, practice speaking skills, and develop sequential thinking.  At the end of the program, your child will have cool tricks, new perspectives, and unforgettable experiences. 

Discover Magic is a one-of-a-kind, internationally recognized program
created by some of the top magicians of our time. 

What You Get

Discover The Real

Secrets of Magic

For centuries, the best magicians have learned the secrets of magic from other magicians. 

With the Discover Magic program, that tradition continues as the secrets of a true magician are passed down from magician to young magician. 

Every Discover Magic class features: 

  • Custom Created Props

  • One of the Traits of a True Magician

  • Top Secret file folders for every child

  • Special bonus material the kids can unlock online with a secret code after each class.

The tricks taught are specially designed to encourage and reinforce the life skill being focused on during that lesson.

Learn, Practice, and


Discover Magic students come away confident and ready to share what they have learned with family and friends.  Plus, each magic trick reinforces a critical life skill that goes way beyond the magic.  

  • The course is broken down into eight sessions taught over four weeks, and each session is about 45 minutes long.

  • BONUS: on Fridays, "office hours" are open just before dinner-time on zoom for practice sessions and to answer any questions the student has about what they're learning.
