The Science of Magic - Online on ZOOM$145.00 ($75.00 minimum deposit)Register
Taught by Dr. Gustav Kuhn and Dr. Ricardo Rosenkranz
January 16 2021 / 11 am - 2 pm PST & January 17 / 12:30pm-3:30pm (room opens 30 minutes before class)
At its core, magical performance succeeds when magicians understand the role of meaning, emotion, interpretation, and belief along with technical mastery. For the first time in Mystery School course offerings, we are able to offer a curriculum on the deep psychological and neurobiological underpinnings of magical performance.
The last two decades have witnessed an explosion of scientific research on magic, and Dr. Gustav Kuhn has been at the forefront of this exciting new endeavor. Gustav leads the MAGIC-lab, a research unit dedicated to scientific research on magic. He has published nearly 80 scientific papers and a highly acclaimed book on the science of magic (Experiencing the Impossible). We are honored to host Gustav as a distinguished guest lecturer for the first time at McBride’s Magic and Mystery School. The course is Hosted by Dr. Ricardo Rosenkranz, creator of the highly successful Medicine and Magic curriculum taught at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine.Learn more about The Science of Magic - Online on ZOOM

TAUGHT BY PAUL DRAPER
This class will be on Zoom and will run on three consecutive Tuesdays for at least 90 minutes each January 26, February 2 & 9 from 5-7 pm (Pacific). The classes will be recorded and available for 1 month after the original class so you can catch up if you miss it.
I want to see more performers succeed on Zoom! I’m offering a class teaching everything I know about performing Zoom shows from setting up the studio to selecting the effects, how to train a stage manager, how to book the shows, and get multiple repeat bookings. I’m going to cover multiple income streams and even have celebrity guest speakers.
Since March 2020, I’ve presented hundreds of online events, more than any other magician in the country. I sometimes perform as many as six shows a day for groups as small as 20 and as large as 2,000.
My virtual shows have been experienced online by the CEO of Burger King, the inventor of Siri, and many corporate groups like Nokia, HP, Sotheby's, the American Association of Neurology, and national healthcare summits.Learn more about Succeeding with Magic on Zoom - Online on ZOOM
Deep Study of a Modern Master: Robert E. Neale - Online on ZOOM$145.00 ($75.00 minimum deposit)Register
Taught by Dr. Larry Hass, the Dean
January 28-February 11, 2021
$145.00 ($75.00 minimum deposit)
Taught online through the Zoom platform on three Thursdays: January 28, February 4, and February 11 at 5:00 p.m. PACIFIC (8:00 p.m. EASTERN). Each session is 120 minutes, plus 30 minutes Q & A. All the sessions will be recorded and available to registrants for two months.
Dr. Larry Hass will lead you in a DEEP STUDY of Robert E. Neale’s important TRILOGY OF MAGIC: The Magic of Celebrating Illusion, The Sense of Wonder, and An Essay on Magic. You will learn at least seven of Bob’s highly innovative, mind-bending magic routines (each one with a fully developed script), but you will also learn in great detail about the rather deep philosophy of magic that underlies and inspires them. Along the way you will also learn additional routines from Bob’s brand-new book (released on January 15, 2021): Magic Inside Out.
Having Bob's books is NOT a pre-requisite to attend, although the three Trilogy books are available for purchase—in print or PDF form—here. Magic Inside Out will be available there, too, on January 15, 2021.
Martin Gardner: “Bob Neale is a wonder. How Neale manages to think of such things is a mystery hard to fathom.”
Eugene Burger: “Bob Neale has created so many presentations that point us to life—our real lives with all their joy and sorrow, their confusion and clarity, their doubt and faith.Learn more about Deep Study of a Modern Master: Robert E. Neale - Online on ZOOM

Live on the Zoom Platform / 2 Days from 11:00 am - 2:00pm Pacific
“I feel that anything in this world that can reduce the pain of one who is suffering can be considered medicine,
and magic is good medicine. —Jeff McBride
From ancient times, there has been a mysterious connection between the shaman and the showman. There is a good deal of evidence that at one time the tribal elder was also the storyteller, historian, healer, and magician.

Master Class for Mentalism, 2021 - LIVE IN LAS VEGAS$695.00 ($350.00 minimum deposit)Register
Tuition is $695 if you register before Dec.15. After that, it will be $895.
Also: We are hoping this will be LIVE in LAS VEGAS...but of course, nothing is certain. If live classes are not possible by that time, the class will be online again, and the full tuition will be $350, the amount of your deposit for the live class.
In response to many requests and because of extraordinary demand, we are delighted to present this Master Class aimed exclusively at mentalists. Jeff McBride's Master Class is the premier program in contemporary magic where YOU and your performance take center stage in a safe and supportive setting.
At this Special Master Class, all of the performances, talks, and breakout sessions are focused on the performing art of MENTALISM. Regular faculty members Jeff McBride and Dr. Larry Hass will share their thoughts on Mentalism and Mystery Entertainment. And our Special Guest for the Class will once again be ROSS JOHNSON, perhaps the most successful corporate mentalist in the United States. This is a RARE opportunity to learn from Ross, because he does not write books and rarely speaks to groups of mentalists. We are thrilled to be able to spend several days with him finding out what has made him so successful.
Our focus for the 2020 Master Class for Mentalism will be on: THREE MODERN MASTERS: CASSIDY, RICHARDSON, AND WATERS.
(Special subjects for 2021 TBA)
This is an exciting opportunity, and it will sell out quickly. We hope that you will join us this November 11-14, 2020!Learn more about Master Class for Mentalism, 2021 - LIVE IN LAS VEGAS
