Make Money Teaching Magic Classes

Guest Author - Joann Stewart

Magic workshops are easy to book and a great way to make money as a magcian. Rather than doing a show, you teach the children how to do various simple tricks. Classes are very popular with libraries and other community youth programs.

A balloon animal shop might also go over well in your area.

With a magic workshop, I put together a small magic kit for each child.
It will include a "Bill Harris" magic dollar which has several tricks on it.
(For a sample bill you can customize and photocopy, send $5 to: Magic Marketing, 25438 Cadiz Road, Freeport, Ohio 43973.)

I also include a fortune-telling fish, 2 card monte, 2 paper-clips (which will be used with the magic dollar to do the "linking paper-clips trick). Linking ropes, which I make up inexpensively. A small lunch bag is also provided.
I hand out the bag at the beginning, but the props are distributed one at a time as I demonstrate each effect.

In addition to these items, I also teach simple tricks like the crayon prediction, disappearing coin (elbow method), and sometimes things like the rock in the shoe, disappearing saltshaker, a paper tear, and similar simple tricks that can be done with things around the house.

Inexpensive tricks like the fortune-telling fish and 2 card monte are available from Robbins Magic in New York for pennies. I put together the whole magic kit for under $1.00 I charge the library $2 per child materials fee plus my standard fee for a 40 minute class. You might also offer the class for free and up the magic kit cost to $5 per child. The items in the kit are inexpensive but are a good value even at $5.

Magic workshops can be offered to all kinds of children's programs and usually sell well. You can stay very busy with workshops like these, so be sure to develop one.

Be sure to read my other articles on marketing. You will find the information you need to sell your Magic Class in the articles in my archive.

If I can be of any assistance, please contact me. I love to help. Be sure to share your success with me, too.
