Youtube is a vast and expansive place with anyone with a smartphone being able to make youtube content. This can mean that quality can range on a spectrum from the bad, good and the great depending on who you choose to watch.

It is this reason that many magicians on the café and elsewhere give trepidation about recommending Youtube as a quality source of instruction and information.

Regardless of these sentiments, I feel a vast majority of people will take to Youtube regardless, so giving some direction to the better content out there might be a prudent endeavour.

It is for this reason that I thought a thread compiling quality magic Youtube channels would be beneficial to many newcomers to the magic fraternity.

So without further of ado here are some channels I recommend to new magicians. I hope to add more as I come across others in the future.

52Kards is a leading educational platform and supplier of products for students of magic. Their channel features hundreds of high quality tutorials, deck reviews, performances and other great videos. Visit their website to purchase premium training courses, designer playing cards, and other magic tricks.

Came across Spideys channel recently and found it to be an eclectic array of content ranging from Magic, Mentalist and Hypnosis tutorials and performances, Vlogs, contests and puzzles you can trying to solve etc. Spidey offers a real mixed bag with his content offering everyone in any field something to offer. Well worth checking out.

Chris Ramsey is an accomplished card magician and his channel you'll find Magic, Puzzles, Vlogs and a combination of all three mixed with odd competition, tutorial review etc. Sort of the same mix as Spideys channel without the heavy focus on mentalism and hypnosis. Great all around channel.

If you like to learn tricks with Cards, Coins, and of the ESP variety then the channel Totally Magic is for you. Heaps of tutorials of various varieties to learn your next trick from. Oh, he also does the odd review every now and then. So go check him out.

If you don't know who Murphys Magic is then you've probably been living under a rock. Not only are they one of the premier wholesale suppliers to magic shops around the world, they also just so happen to have their own Youtube channel. Not only is their channel a litany of trailers of the latest up and coming magic products, they also do a series of interviews with notable magic personality's within the community. If that's not enough, they also do free trick Fridays where you can learn a magic trick. Well worth your time checking out for the latest and greatest, interviews and the odd magic tutorial.

Shin Lim doesn't need any introduction. As one of the premiere talents of magic today his channel is abuzz with some pretty amazing visual magic, video streams with other famous magicians, live performance videos, trick tutorials and vlogs.

Jay Sankey is one of a long list of prolific creators of magic tricks and products which he sells through magic shops and through his own online store. His channel however is loaded with trick tutorials based on many of his own creations and combining existing ideas into great magic. Well worth look into for any newcomer to magic.

Rich Ferguson's mantra of Magic, Pranks and Comedy pretty much sums up his channel. Check out is magic pranks he unleash on the general public and get a good laugh. Even learn a magic trick or two along the way. Great channel.

Let me introduce you to the TheRussianGenius. Whether or not he is a genius I'll let you decide, regardless he seems to make good magic tutorials worth checking out.

Anyway guys and girls, that should be enough for my first installment, stay tuned for more additions latter. If you have a youtube channel worth mentioning please tell us about it in a reply below.

until then...

Hi Aus,

I'm definitely with you on Asad's 52kards; I'm not as familiar with the other people you mention. One of my favorite channels is A Million Card Tricks. Nathan is personable, and his explanations are clear, confident, and relaxed, and I enjoy the tricks he chooses. It's been fun to follow him and watch him grow from an adolescent to a young man. I like his work from both the "younger" and the "older" periods.

Another channel I like -- though I don't think it's active anymore -- is Complete Deception. You can still find Tom's videos on the web.

Both Nathan and Tom are genuinely interested in teaching, not exposure for its own sake.

If you decide to look into the channels, you'll be far better able to tell than I can whether these teachers have a sufficient knowledge of their subject.

Daniel Madison's channel is a good place to learn, he has released material from his downloads like the Broken Bridge False Shuffle. I also like the channels of Alex Pandrea and Xavior Spade, they are a great source to start. My favorite for beginners is Disturb Reality, why? Cause he has a couple of videos on the problems you can have when performing and sometimes you can't even find those tips on the downloads, DVD''s or books you pay for. In simple words, real world advices that will improve the performance of any guy that has just started.

Other great channels to learn:
- I have to second 52 kards, great channel.
- Art Zone (really good stuff here)
- Ekaterina
- Pigcake
- Wade -, it's in chinese but you can understand what's going on with subtitles.
- Rise Magic
- Russian Genius
- Rick Holcombe
