The Magic Master Classes, that I held during this year 2013, have been incredibly successful. Some students, who were beginners, are now aware that magic has a LOT more to it than just the so-called secret of the trick. Professionals have increased their income and number of bookings by taking on board the business advice.
At the moment we are on tour and everywhere we go I get requests for more Magic Days and a few people want to give them as Christmas presents so here we go…
Paul Daniels hosts up to 10 students at a time in his home near Henley upon Thames.
The days run from 10a.m. until 5.30p.m. with a break for lunch from 1 until 2.
Students range from absolute beginners to full time professionals but must not be under 16 years of age.
Payment is via PayPal to email@example.com and the fee for the full day is £130 and you will then receive full information. How to book is at the bottom of this page.
This is a very recent review by a participant: I can’t remember exactly when I became interested in Magic but I do have my Paul Daniels Magic Annual from 1983 to give me a clue. I was 11 then and I remember for Christmas getting a Paul Daniels Magic Set and I even put on a show for my parents. Then we watched The Paul Daniels Magic Show (mind you, everyone did!)
Fast forward to today. Now I perform Magic for Children and enjoy every minute of it. I was looking on a certain auction site for Stage Magic and came across Paul Daniels (who as we all know has a trick or two in his shed). This led me to a page on his website which was entitled ‘Magic Days’. At first, I could not believe that it was possible but after reading the page again I came to the correct conclusion that for a small amount of money ( I thought it must be a misprint, it was too cheap) you can visit Paul at his house and spend the day from 10:00 am to 5:30 pm discussing all things Magic with Paul.
I was lucky enough to get to visit him for a Magic Day on 22nd June, with him answering the door with a coffee in one hand and in a very nice pair of slippers. The day started with several nervous fans of Paul, myself included, being taught several key lessons in Magic and also being shown some Magic Tricks. The chance is there to perform some of your routine and get some positive advice on maybe how to improve it, if you wish. I would recommend bringing a note pad to take notes as I didn’t realise until I was home how many pages of notes I had taken. I won’t discuss the specific tricks as that would just spoil it! After several anecdotes and tricks and lots of advice we went to the village for lunch. On our return Paul went more in depth into issues specific to the people in the room, including Children’s Magicians and the business side of Magic ( which I found very useful and I know will more than cover the cost of the day). We were a little more confident by now and were asking a lot more questions, which Paul answered in depth. the day ended with some photos of Paul ( and the very lovely Debbie McGee) and lots of magic books coming out for signatures. One of them being a Paul Daniels Annual from 1983, when I was 11.
I would highly recommend the Magic Day, if you are lucky enough to get the chance to go. One of the many things I took away from the day after watching Paul is, it’s not all about the Magic, sometimes it’s all about the Magician.
