A video highlighting some of the the top mistakes beginners make.

If you’re a beginner and interested in learning magic, here is some great advice for you. Because we all learn from our mistakes, I thought it makes sense to start with discussing some of the the top mistakes beginners make...hopefully saving you the time in making these mistakes yourself!

00:56 Focus on the method and not the presentation

19:06 Copycats - Be the best you, you can be!

21:14 Learning alone - self teaching

24:12 Asking for a volunteer

26:43 Believes everyone loves magic
