The Magic Nexus Newsletter

Hello all,

Thanks for being a subscriber to the Magic Nexus newsletter!

This newsletter took a little longer to send, as I have added a new service to the Magic Nexus! I had to add software and two new videos on the site, which took me longer than I had anticipated.

On to the announcement: I am now teaching private online magic lessons! Private magic lessons were a huge part of my magical development, so it is most appropriate for me to offer them to you!

Unlike a lecture or webinar, in a private online lesson, you, and your questions, are the focus. You get my full attention and full access to my expertise.You get to ask about whatever interests you, and if I have the prerogative to teach it, I will. Of course, this includes my own moves, sleights and routines, and any published items that I have studied. Have a question about a palm or a pass? Great! Want to learn more details about my card case load or coins across? Fantastic. The topics are up to you!

I can also watch you perform your own routines and offer up my suggestions for improvements. For example, I was able to create an improvement to Juan Tamariz' Total Coincidence. I explained my concept to Juan, and I am happy to say that he is now using my idea in his routine. Imagine having me do the same for one of your own effects!

You can book a private online lesson here. On that page, you can watch a short video that Juan made with me, as well as a demonstration of my camera setup. To take a lesson, all that is necessary is an internet connection, and video software, such as FaceTime or Skype. Have a look at the page, watch the videos and let me know what you think!


Since the last newsletter, there have been two new blog posts:
  • Books of Wonder Review — This is a review that I wrote back when the Books of Wonder were initially released. Since the books have been recently republished, I decided to republish my original review, which expresses how important I believe Tommy's books are to magic.
  • How I met Juan Tamariz — This was originally published as a cover article for the Linking Ring. It explains how I met Juan, and how he has inspired me. Rereading it brought back some delightful memories, and since I am writing s new article about Juan, I felt that this would make a nice piece to share with new readers.
That is all for now. If you have any questions, I am all ears!
