It does no good to teach a student to learn a difficult sleight all by itself, without context. It becomes meaningless. The old way of teaching musical instruments was to start off and teach the student a few scales on the instrument. Then they would learn a tune. The new approach is just the reverse. They learn a few notes. Then they learn a tune that uses those notes. Then they learn some more notes. After a few lessons, they learn a scale. If they are playing a guitar or a piano, they will soon learn chords. But they don't start off with the Sor studies or Rachmaninoff's Second. Magic should be the same way. There should be some easy tricks that give the student a basic grasp of one or two sleights or principles and how to apply them. Then a new sleight. Then a couple of new tricks that use it. You don't start them in with an Abbott's Buzz Saw. [/quote]
