Those in the Nashville magic scene know John well. He goes beyond doing tricks, focusing the effect as part of a character doing the impossible. He's slightly unusual, which makes him tops in my book.

If you are even slightly considering this series, you owe it to yourself to at contact John.

Yes, I am a magician. No I did not make my hare (hair) disappear... it just took early retirement.

FYI - this is a "Heads up". John is based out of Nashville, TN yes...But no matter where you are if you work with an assistant in your show it would be money well INVESTED into your show for her to have this training. This is no matter where in the states or world you are and perform! This is an investment in YOU.

That is why I priced the workshop so low - so that magicians anywhere in the US or the World could afford to send their assistants. I have set up a special hotel rate with a hotel less than a mile from my workshop space, so it is a very affordable investment!

The first class is almost full! - I have two spots left. If you have an assistant that you would like to take this class, then now is the time!
