For centuries, the secrets and history of magic were closely guarded by magicians or locked away in books that were difficult to acquire. Only those who were able to prove their commitment to learning magic would be able to gain access to this information. While libraries, magic shops and videos eventually made magic more accessible than it was during the days of Harry Houdini, learning magic has never been as instantaneous as it is now.

With the massive popularity of magic video downloads and ebooks, beginner magicians can unlock the secrets to a lifetime of card magic, coin magic, mind reading and more with just the click of a button.

But, What About YouTube Magic?

Every member of the Vanishing Inc. team is a magician. We all love magic and learning as much as we can about the art. Therefore, we completely understand the appeal of learning free magic tricks on YouTube—especially for beginner magicians.

While there are some truly talented magicians on YouTube, a bulk of the magic tutorials are taught poorly by those who have not yet taken the time to master the sleight of hand or magic trick themselves. Therefore, a beginner magician learning from these videos is likely to pick up bad habits that can impede their future growth.

When learning the fundamentals of magic, it is best for beginner magicians to stick with high-quality resources such as magic downloads, DVDs, books and ebooks that have been created by professional magicians with years, or even decades, of experience. YouTube is best reserved as an additional resource for watching a particular sleight or magic trick in action or to occasionally learn a quick party trick or bar bet.
