Alright fellow magicians, how are you all doing? Fine I hope. Can anyone recommend any good videos by Michael Ammar? Please no card videos. I already know you can get his Easy to Master Card Miracles. It can be any magic as long as it's not CARDS, even close-up magic or coin magic will do.

Also, do any of you guys have any information on this guy? All I know is that he is very well respected in the magic world and he has won tons of trophies. Thanks for your time and help, it is very much appreciated.

Best Regards
Take care all of you Smile Smile Smile

I bought his Introduction to Coin Magic DVD and it really helped me out since I am beginning in coin magic. He teaches the basics really well, and it is far easier to search for sleights and routines with a DVD. Just my two cents.

He has a website at: http://www.michaelammar.com

It talks a bit about himself and also has his products. He has a video/DVD Complete Introduction to Magic. It has a little of everything on it: sponge magic, rubber bands, card, coins, close-up and some advice. It also shows him performing Cups and Balls...phenomenal.

I recently purchased his cups and balls DVDs, volumes 1 and 2. I also acquired the Mercury Wand through his website. I can only say that Mr. Ammar is an outstanding magician and teacher. After viewing this material you feel like you know him personally. Let me highly recommend these DVDs. You will learn to perform the trick that is probably most synonymous with this enchanting art.

I want to emphasize that not only is Ammar an outstanding magician, he's an outstanding teacher. He's one of a sadly very few people who take the time to figure out how the material should be taught ahead of time. I can't tell you how many videos I've seen where the magician says, "Now I'm going to show you the move. Except I don't think the camera can get the right angle... and I can't do it if I slow it down..." You don't get that with Ammar. I don't think there's anyone out there better at teaching magic.

Right answer is probably "any other Ammar DVD". Smile

If you are doing show for business try purchase his two audio tapes Making Magic Memorable and Negotiating Higher Performance Fees. If you have a topit, he has a topit video tape. If you use invisible thread, he has a three-volume set titled Easy To Master Thread Miracles. They are all good. You can purchase them at http://www.LLPUB.com

Although I don't really like his performing style, I agree that he is a great teacher. He explains things very well, and his videos and DVDs are awesome. He is also a very nice person.

I went to one of his lectures over the summer and having been rather new to magic, he made it all the more easier to get into it.

Ammar has a great video for those that are new to magic called The Exciting World of Magic. I think I got it from Amazon and has about 20 tricks covering all areas of magic. I think this may be the first video I got and I still go back to it quite often.

Easy To Master Coin Miracles may fit the bill. And if you have interest in the Cups and Balls, his set on that is a treasure. Ammar is a great performer and teacher. His performance style may not appeal specifically to magicians, but his teaching is surely for us all.

You could try also "Icebreakers". It´s a great Ammar´s video about impromptu magic.

All the best magic,
