3 Weeks / 2 hours plus discussion each week.
aka: Making Money with Magic!
Week One: Overview. What it takes to build a strong business
Week Two: Finding / Serving Your Particular Market / Audience
Week Three: Build Out Your Systems
We all spend our lives improving our performances—but most have no idea of how to turn our good work into a business or career. After 40 years in showbusiness, running shows and theaters on and off-Broadway and managing the careers of some of our top magicians—I think I can help you get a better handle on the “Business” part of “Show-Business.” I’ve produced and managed for both the corporate and casino market, as well as producing and managing many, many touring shows. There must be a hundred different possible business models a magician can use to thrive—but you have to understand basic business principles before you can hope for real success in most of them. This class will give you that understanding.Learn more about Introduction to the Business of Show Business

One Day, Noon - 3 pm Pacific Time
Our TAROT CARD MAGIC EXPERIENCE in May 2020 was so popular that we are now offering an
ALL NEW CLASS for those of you who want to journey deeper into the mysteries of Tarot. This class is open to everyone and anyone that has prior knowledge of the Tarot, or those who have attended our previous Tarot Card Magic Experience.
Who is this class for?
This is an intermediate and advanced class for people that already have a working knowledge of Tarot. If you are familiar with tarot cards and like to combine card readings, magic and other mysteries, this intermediate and advanced class will offer you new insights, tools, methods and complete routines that you can immediately apply to your work.
Our modern-day deck of cards has a fascinating origin. Many say that modern-day playing cards came from the mysterious beginnings of the tarot. Some say they are a mystic oracle, and a book of ancient wisdom handed down through the ages.Learn more about Tarot Card Magic Intensive - Live on ZOOM

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
