Live lecture by John Guastaferro ($75.00)

We are enamored with John Guastaferro's style of magic: smooth, relatable, visual, and compelling. Imagine a mix between John Bannon, Paul Harris, and Allan Ackerman, with an added artistic ingredient. John's magic is, above all, streamlined and silky smooth, and there is nearly always a compelling presentational angle. John G is not only an exemplary magician and frequent performer at the Magic Castle, but he is also an accomplished guitarist and motivational speaker.

We welcome John G. to Masterclass: LIVE and look forward to what he will bring to this platform. John G.'s magic is highly accessible, so each week you will learn effects you can and will USE in a performance setting. And as John has both performed and lectured in the virtual world, some of what he shares will be directly applicable in your virtual performance work. The emphasis will be on his unique brand of card magic, and the curriculum will be a mixture of his most popular effects, deep cuts, and previously unpublished work.

I need to first take the time to compliment Vanishing Inc. Magic in general and John Guastaferro in particular for John's 2nd week Masterclass lecture held yesterday!

WOW! What a lecture! Ten minutes into the lecture, I scrambled to pick up my cell phone and begin taking notes to myself (as I made notes on a just completed card trick)...and, as it turns out, for each subsequent card trick as each was performed and explained...and I never put my cell phone down for the entire rest of the lecture. WOW! WOW! WOW! What an exciting lecture! And then equally as good (if not arguably better) was John's and Andi's discussion on marketing and branding. I was enthralled! Super exciting and interesting....and an emptiness instantly enveloped me as the Masteclass came to an end.

Man! I've watched many magic lectures (and I really get off on lectures on performance theory) but, I cannot remember a lecture that I have enjoyed more and/or got more out of than John's Week 2 lecture.

I've always been a huge fan of John's after his Full Circle rope trick video. What creativity and insight! (And then, inevitably others stole John's methodology and even failed to give him proper credit or attribution.)

And now, to discover that John is a true Renaissance Man and is soo multi-talented (i.e., Flamenco Guitar? His Degree in college was Business and Marketing? Business Leader and Motivational Speaker?,...C'mon! Stop it! Get out of Dodge!) I am in complete awe of John Guastaferro.

Reviewer

John is such a great thinker and this class is FULL of card magic that is practical and fooling, with presentations that make it entertaining. This is one you can keep going back to again and again.

 
Reviewer

Jack

A different style of Masterclass: instead of teaching principles and then showing how they're applied in effects, John taught a torrent of effects and the principles come out naturally and are elaborated upon organically. Super fun, super effecting, super engaging. Really got a lot out of these.

This lecture was fantastic. Not just the tricks, but the tools John uses to add clarity to his work. The tricks were great and worth the price of admission, but the answers to questions were pure gold!

Excellent! Always enjoy John's work. It appears so smooth, effortless, conversational, and magical. One of my favorite teachers in magic! Thanks, John, Andi, and Josh!!

 
Reviewer

Chuck

Truly worth every penny of the subscription! It works out to only $12.50/session. No where else can you find 1.5 to 2 hours of top notch magic training for that price, not even DVDs or downloads. Furthermore, you also get a digital download of every session automatically included!

Thank you for inviting me to this masterclass with John Guasteferro. John was awesome to watch and the tricks were great. The explanations were good but will probably need to watch it over again to catch it all. Overall a wonderful introduction to the Masterclass series.

 
Reviewer

John

I really enjoyed the lecture. Would be helpful to have lecture notes to go along with it as it is hard to remember every thing. Thanks Again, John Sprague

I have been a huge John G fan for several years and have done Vino Aces as a major piece for my performances. This was a huge treat. I have learned a lot here and will be going back to the recordings again and again.

 
Reviewer

An excellent Masterclass. I've gained a library of new tricks, but - more importantly - the thoughts John offered regarding his approach to magic were truly transformational.

Stunning!

I was invited as a guest of Josh and Andi to watch John Guastaferro's Magic Class. I have to say the quality of the material and insight into performance was fantastic. The sound and the picture quality are first rate also. I do look forward to subscribing to master class so that I can enjoy and learn from future performers. Thanks Guys for the Great Surprise!!!

Wonderful class. John Guastaferro is such a good instructor. This should be required viewing for all subsequent Masterclass teachers. Thank you to Josh, Andi and the entire Vanishing Inc. team for always providing the best in quality magic.

 
Reviewer

Danny

John G is one of those guys that makes you feel really comfortable in the ‘learning’ environment - especially for ‘learners’ who may not know all of the latest moves in card magic. Consequently, John G is an extraordinarily inspirational performer! Today I was a guest viewer for this Masterclass. My only regret is that I did not subscribe to the month long John Guastaferro Masterclass. These classes are simply a brilliant idea, and not something you want to miss out on. Thank you VanishingINC. for the invitation to this truly wonderful class today. Thank you John G for being the cause and effect of why this was truly wonderful!

This is a month that was solidly knocked out of the park. John G. has an elegant smoothness in performance, and his teaching flows very well. So far of all of the months of Masterclass I would have to rank this at the top. Can't wait to see what is next.

John’s work is visually stunning! His presentations, ask the spectator to create/ cement the effect within their mind through thoughtful presentation, which gives his magic double punch long after the performance. Thanks John for pointing the way through your insightful lecture series.

I could only stay for the first half hour, but that was great!

 
Reviewer

Charlie

Very solid materal all three weeks.

 
Reviewer

Ryan

This was great. The hour-and-a-half time was awesome - I think a lot of the time, lectures feel the need to pack in the material and you end up with fatigue. I like the shorter, one hour time (plus 30 minutes of questions, etc). Great material, well taught.
