Are you ready for your magic to create more impact?
Do you want your performances to be more creative, more self-expressive, and more moving for your audience?
There is a better way to learn the art of magic than simply buying more “tricks” (which you may never use) and going along with the hype. It is possible to delight viewers and create connections with magic that is more fulfilling for you and your audience.
And this is exactly why Larry Hass is drawn to teaching the art of magic.
Teaching is one of Larry’s highest callings, driven by his ability to take difficult or complex ideas and distill them into easily understood lessons that are empowering for students. His teaching is transformational, focusing not just on the technical skills but on the performance as a whole. He identifies and creates excellent routines for his students to perform, offering a heightened experience for their audiences and improving the public’s perception of magic as an art form.
As a student under Larry’s teaching, you can expect to:
- Learn high-quality magic routines out of Larry’s own professional repertoire—meaning they will work in real-world performing situations.
- Master “practical concepts”—that is, conceptual tools and models—that will help you improve the quality of your magic and your overall enjoyment of the art.
- Gain detailed understanding of the “higher secrets” of the art of magic, including developing your performing character, building effective shows, nourishing your magic-performing business, and understanding what it means to live as a professional performing artist.
