Memory & Magic

This class is open to students in grades 6 - 12.

Memory Training

Learn advanced mnemonic techniques for memory improvement which will help in all areas of high school and college studies, in careers, and in life. Topics include: 

• Paired Associates: Learn how to link any concepts together with a mental link. 

• Linked Lists: Learn how to remember a list of any length.

• The Journey Method: Learn to give speeches without notes.

These techniques can be applied to many topics such as science, languages, geography, and more. Since remembering and using people's names is one of the best ways to connect with others in any situation, the class includes a special emphasis on names and faces. The class uses a workshop format where students learn, practice, and review the memory techniques to assure mastery. Students will discover they can remember more than they ever believed possible.

Magic Tricks Training

Learn secrets of sleight of hand with ordinary objects such as cards, coins, pens, and napkins.

Learn to use misdirection techniques to mystify and presentation skills to entertain. With these special tricks, memory and presentation skills, and the ability to make balloon animals (also taught in class), students will be ready to launch a side business as a birthday party or event entertainer. The class also covers ideas on how to create and run a freelance party magician business. At the end of the course, each student will present a magical routine to the class and invited guests.
