Impressing Friends and Family...
It is a common misconception that learning magic tricks is a difficult and arduous task.
Now of course, in order to get to the same performing level and expertise of some famous magicians like Criss Angel, David Blaine, Richiardi, Dante, Mark Wilson and Harry Houdini to name a few.
You have to have that talent and willingness to put in hard work because it takes years of practice in order to become an expert.
But if you are simply looking to entertain and impressing friends or family members at a party by performing some magic tricks then all it requires is some dedication and time from your end and before you know it you will be adept at performing magic tricks and get showered with praises.
With the help of the right resources and commitment, one can perform amazing magic tricks. Magic is a broad term that encompasses a lot of versatile tricks.
While some of the tricks are crazily difficult others may not be that difficult for an amateur and inexperienced magician to perform.
In order to ensure that the spectators would not be able to guess the secret behind the magic tricks, the performer or magician should ensure that he/she practices the trick well enough to be able to perform it very fast and smoothly.
Only then will you be impressing friends and family.
Irrespective of whether one is an amateur magician or an experienced one, the secret behind the magic trick should be well guarded otherwise it would just defeat the purpose of performing.
If the spectators happen to be friends and families then of course the magician or the illusionist would be itching to reveal the secrets behind the tricks, especially when there is a lot of persuasion and pleadings coming from the spectators.
The basic rule of becoming a magician is to never give in to the demands or requests of the spectators or the audience and reveal the secrets.
As a magician, it is important to ace the performance as this would garner the respect and appreciation of the audience.
Revealing the secrets would only cause the trick to lose its essence.
So what can one do when one is performing in front of family members or friends?
Is it possible to not give out the secrets? The answer to this question is yes.
If you want you can stick to your decision and maybe say in a polite tone that you never give out the secrets to your magic tricks. One can also add in a humble apology as this always appeals to the spectators.
It is important to be firm and polite at the same time.
When performing with the push to impressing friends and family, a majority of the magicians are under the impression that they should belt out one trick after another in order to impress his/her crowd.
This is not always the case because sometimes it is better to wow the crowds with just one or two magic tricks performed with grace and wit rather than performing a whole lot of magic tricks in a mediocre manner.
Therefore simply concentrate on a
couple of magic tricks and while you are at it and ace at performing
Another thing that the magician should be mindful of is his/her limitations and it is always better to avoid those magic tricks that emphasize the limitations or weakness of the magician and focus on the ones which highlight his/her strong points and talents.
Performing magic is subjective to a lot of conditions therefore the magician must perform the magic trick only when he/she feels that the situation is ideal for the trick.
The key to putting up a good magic performance is to leave the spectators, which in this case would be the friends and families, craving for more and requesting for more magic tricks.
A humble magician is always appreciated and loved provided he does not brag about his tricks or talents but allows them to do the talking for him.
If you have performed a great magic trick then the people would know it and appreciate it anyways and blowing your own trumpet is not called for here.
Your Impressing Friends and Family
It is not necessary that each and every one trying out magic is supposed to become a professional magician.
Even if one does not aspire to perform at a professional level, one can always brush up on his/her magic skills in order to become a magician or illusionist for parties and gatherings only.
This provides the person with the chance to keep in touch with magic and to do what he/she loves doing the most without necessarily taking it up as a full-time job of a professional magician.
Perfecting the magic tricks calls for sleight of hand, quick movements and an alert mind as this would prevent the audience from interpreting the secrets and they would actually believe that your illusions are real magic.
So go on and start Impressing Friends and Family with your talent.
