QUALIFICATIONS AND APPLICATION FOR ENROLLMENT
The course is open to anyone, age 10-100, who has a sincere desire to learn and a serious dedication to succeed. However, space is limited.
We may admit students as young as 8 years of age, based upon a personal interview with them and their parents. Madhrikan himself began his magic career at age 8, but this course will be very demanding. For an 8 or 9 year old student we will permit one parent to accompany him if he so desires.
THE MAGICIAN'S CODE
When you enroll in this course, you will be asked to sign the Magician's Code, in which you promise not to reveal the secrets of magic to non-magicians. This is a requirement of the course. If for some reason you cannot sign this code, you cannot take the course.
Madhrikan, the Magician Extraordinaire, who is highly skilled and trained in the art of magic, sleight of hand, close-up Magic, big illusion and stage magic, will be the instructor for this two day experience. Having developed an interest in magic at 8 years of age, he has been studying and performing magic for most of his life in many different settings - parties, club meetings, conventions, on stage and television - and beginning with the 2017 season starring in his own full-length magic show in his own theater, Madhrikan's Theater of Magic.
He is not only a seasoned and highly-accomplished performer, but he is also an excellent teacher, holding a B. A. degree in Speech Education, and has taught professionally in many settings to all ages. Every student he has taught will say he is an outstanding teacher who requires excellence from his students.
THE NEED FOR SUCH A SCHOOL
Magic is more popular than ever, but magic schools are few and far between. No video or written material can provide the level of instruction that can be accomplished with Live Professional Teachers and Magicians, but access to this kind of instruction is rare. Hands-on training is of the utmost importance in magic. Madhrikan says, "As an educator I took all the courses that teach one how to teach, but I learned more as a student teacher than I did in all those courses put together."
The discipline and self-confidence that come from magic training will help you in every endeavor of your life. People from every walk of life make up the Magic Fraternity, from Doctors, Lawyers, CEOs, Educators and Ministers to students working their way through school.
