The indisputable skills you need to become a better magician.

Every magician eventually has to face the tough-to-swallow reality that learning more magic tricks doesn’t make you a better magician. To truly create an unforgettable experience for your audience, you must recognize that what you say is just as important, if not more important, than what you do.

Nobody knows this better than Pete McCabe. His Scripting Magic series features two of the most transformative magic books ever written. Now, Pete has created a more than 5 1/2 hour download that offers all the skills you need to improve your overall performance. This is the true definition of a masterclass.

The "Pete McCabe Masterclass" will help you make every trick you do better by harnessing the power of scripting. It has been carefully developed to offer value for magicians of all skill levels from scripting veterans to those who have never scripted a magic trick in their life.

This Masterclass is broken down into three downloads that expand upon the core concepts of Scripting Magic while also offering real-world examples for the first time on video and sharing new details that have never been shared with a mass audience before. Along the way, he'll walk you through specially-made interactive exercises that allow you to put your new skills to use right away.

Session 1

An exclusive look at the highly-regarded “Scripting Magic” workshop that Pete has presented at conventions and clubs for over 15 years. He shares real-world examples, including, for the first time ever on video, teaching some of his own tricks to show the power of scripting.

Pete also answers five of the most frequently asked questions about scripting magic before leaving you with a challenge to complete before watching the next video. Armed with these new tools, you’ll quickly learn it’s easier to script magic than you ever thought.

Session 2

Make sure to complete your challenge from Session 1, because in this next session, you’ll be learning how to evolve it using a curated selection of the most important advanced techniques from the Scripting Magic series. This includes some new information that has only ever been presented to a close group of friends. Pete will also share some more scripting examples and tricks, and answer the other most frequently asked questions.

Session 3

This is a fascinating recording of a Q&A session that was held on Zoom when this Masterclass first aired live. Members of Vanishing Inc. Monthly shared their creative exercises and got to workshop them live. Watching other magicians work through their material is tremendously insightful and inspiring. This is one of the most unique downloads we've ever offered.

Download the "Pete McCabe Masterclass" today to unlock the skills needed to create a truly powerful act!

This is a great download. If you wanted to learn how to write and refine your scripts then definitely get this. I haven’t bought his books yet, however, this is more than enough to start writing killer scripts!

Scripting magic is a great class. It really makes me think about what I say, and helps me move from stock lines to patter that is more relevant to my character. As 1 example, he has a great depiction of how scripting can make a trick more interesting and reveal info about the performer with a number prediction trick that he teaches.

Pete McCabe and I are roughly the same age. I read his first scripting book for magic more than 10 years ago and bought his second from Vanishing Inc. when it came out. The second had the workbook which was helpful. It is a different thing to see and hear the man himself. What energy and free flowing generosity of ideas. He makes commenting on others treasures seem effortless. I very much recommend this master class for the beginner and veteran.

Very excellent and worthwhile Master Class. I took Pete's 45 minute scripting session at last year's MagiFest University, and was glad to go in more detail in this Master Class. The main take-away is that your magic will improve with focus on what audience is experiencing and how to make your magic more effective. Specifically, to tailor presentations to your character, eliminate words that don't add value, and improve presentations through the process. The exercises and process of making scripts is a great habit I hope to continue to do after attending this classes. Be sure to do the exercises (and write your scripts) though to get the most out of it.

This is exactly what i've been looking for. Pete's class has been great and because i'm currently working overseas I couldn't attend the Q&A live :( and haven't watched it yet but that's on my list for this evening.
However the other two classes have been fantastic and as a hobbiest it helps me to think about my magic differently. I love to present magic in a way that invites the audience into the experience instead of being confrontational or a puzzle to solve.
Anyway, this is my first stab at scripting a trick i've always wanted to do but never had a presentation that felt right.
I give you, thanks in Part to Pete McCabe The Legend of the Ghost Coins https://youtu.be/t0B96YeSFxc

Wow amazing Masterclass! I was about a third through “Scripting Magic” vol 1 when I decided to join the monthly masterclass specifically for Pete’s class. The combo of the book and class is excellent. This may be the most important training for magic I’ve come across. Low quality scripts have always been my Achilles heel. I feel like I’ve finally found the proper armor. Clear, concise, and to the point. I really enjoyed the first class and am looking forward to the next video.

Just outstanding. So grateful you had Pete McCabe share in this format. He has such valuable insights to share, for magicians at every level. Loved his books, and loved learning from him in person. Please encourage him to pen a volume 3 of Scripting Magic. It deserves to be a trilogy. Kevin Swisher

Excellent class and excellent teacher! We all have too many tricks to learn but this class can help us present each trick in the best way possible for us that actually fits our performance style or persona. There is a lot to think about from this class but also a lot of exercises to help us improve each and everything we perform so it is better than the last time we did it.

This epitomizes what the term Masterclass stands for. This is exactly what I'm looking for from my magic lectures. How to make my presentations more compelling, more targeted and more reflective of my values. The structure of Pete McCabe's lesson may be somewhat unique to a recorded session, but if you follow along and do the work he encourages you to do in time with the video, you will be rewarded with a new way of looking at the magic you buy, the scripts you write, and the messages you impart. Thank you VI for bringing us an important and effective series of lectures. Mr McCabe puts the class in Masterclass.

This is where I should have started years ago. Almost every dimension of human experience is improved by understanding the power of language and nonverbal communication in conveying meaning to human experience. Pete McCabe provides the mirror we all avoid not wanting to look into and examine ourselves, flaws and all. Ultimately it is the most effective way of growth. Thank you Pete
