In order for you to become a successful magician, you need to have a good style and technique.
When you first begin, you will need to practice, practice more and when you think you have what you got, practice a lot more. The reason is that you need to be very agile, fast and you need to learn a lot of magic tricks in order for you to wow your audience and that doesn't happen overnight. After all you do not want your audience to discover your tricks because you are too slow. A magician that knows only a couple of tricks may live on little money too.
As a starting magician, you can either choose a trick that everyone has been amazed with and would just love another shot at cracking you secret or try newer ones that will still have people guessing how you do it. The key is to entertain your audience.
Here are the good tricks that have worked in the past:
Brainwave Deck? This is a card trick; arrange your deck of cards facing down and arrange them in the shape of a fan so you can prove to everyone in your audience that you cannot see the cards either.
Then, select a couple of persons from your supporters and have them choose any card they wish from the deck lying down on the table. Obviously you ask the members who just drew the card to show it to rest of the audience. When you shuffle your cards, the card selected will turn face up as the rest of the cards will be face down just like magic and the crowd will go wild.
Dime and Penny? For this trick you will need a dime and a penny. The magician shows a dime to everyone and abracadabra next thing you know, the dime turns into a penny. You have to be extremely fast to do this trick because all this time your audience will be looking at your dime so this is where the motto: the hand is quicker than the eye takes all its sense.
This next one is very popular with young teenagers or little children. Imagine how they will be amazed when you turn an ordinary piece of paper into money!
A variation of this trick is to start with a secret message on a paper the when it comes out in the other hand you have a code.
Next there is a trick called the Stripper Deck Bicycle. This technique learned by the students of magic will give them the ability to select which card was selected by a member of the audience. Even better they can split the deck with the entire red one’s and the entire black one. Not enough for you, well how about trying to make the card move from one body part to the next.
The Stick-o-Bill is a very popular trick. But in order to do this one, you have to be very quick with your hands. The only requirement is an object that is pointed like a pencil. Just ask for an audience member to give you a paper bill and put your pencil through it showing the hole you made to the audience. When you give back the bill to your audience member, there will be no hole.
