Customer reviews for Routines with Rhythm



For the low price of $12 (I snagged it on sale at $6), Routines with Rhythm is an absolute must-have for card magic enthusiasts.

This download introduces you to elegant world of card magic as perfected by a top tier Venezuela magician. Benatar’s expertise and teaching style make learning the Rhythm Count not only accessible but also a delight.

What sets this apart is Benatar’s smooth and elegant style. Watching him perform is a lesson in itself and his routines and techniques can be integrated into your close-up magic acts enhancing them with grace and sophistication.



I was in Magic Inc. in Chicago a year or so ago, and Pedro Nieves the manager told me about the rhythm count, and that I should look into it, so I got my hands on this and Rafael's booklet "Twins With Rhythm" and set to work. Rafael told me that he considers the Twins a nice coda, not an opener or a closer, but a little extra that seals a performance like a little chocolate swizzle stick seals the coffee course, and I agree. Not only that, but the count has loads of other uses, as the poker demonstration demonstrates. Again, like all the Vanishing Inc. produced videos, this one is clear and well produced. I personally found that I needed both the booklet AND the video to get my head around the count, but this video instruction was, I think, much more useful for that purpose and would stand on its own with a non-klutz.



In these two routines, Rafael Benatar gently leads us into a magical world that he dominates to perfection. With a clear and everyday language, he teaches us detail in detail each of the routines, masterfully exposing not only the evolution and development of the trick, but each technique necessary for its perfect execution.



Very useful tips to perform the Rhythm Count, the routine that I loved the most is the version of the Twins (Bro. John Hamman) using the Jennings’s technique. Rafael is a great teacher and leaves nothing to the imagination, everything is explained in full detail. You can’t go wrong with this.
