Wiz Kid Lessons - Book 1

Solution Graphics

The Wiz Kids, Inc. was established in 1980. More information about the group is HERE.

Wiz Kid Members are given lessons in magic (conjuring) based on the "Best of the Best" Philosophy of Jim Gerrish. No time is wasted on kiddie "beginner magic" but they are immersed in learning only the very best in each magic category. Each lesson is filled with historic references leading back to where each trick began, where Wiz Kids can learn more about that type of magic, etc. but the lesson itself challenges them to learn a professional quality magic effect, perform it successfully at least three times in public, and then continue learning more advanced versions up to an amazing climax. Along the way, they learn magic history, magic thinking and techniques from the best professioonal magicians in the world, and learn to make their own tricks, props and gimmicks from inexpensive materials, and buy difficult to make magic materials from inexpensive magic sources.

The following lessons are not in any particular order. A Wiz Kid is attracted to magic tricks that he or she finds of personal interest, for whatever reason, and the educational journey starts there. Wiz Kids are encouraged to learn a variety of tricks to create a balanced magic show that can be used for any audience. Book One covers the Best of the Best in card magic, coin magic, dollar bill magic, rope magic, ball magic, silk handkerchief magic, mental magic, paper magic, liquid magic, and pet (livestock) magic. Each lesson begins with an easy to learn and easy to perform trick, then progresses to a more difficult version, and ends with an advanced magic version that you would expect to see only from a professional experienced magician.

Double Deck Card Magic

The Wiz Kid is taught a three part routine using two decks of cards with different color backs. Chosen cards are made to jump from a spectator's hand to the deck, from red deck to blue deck and back again, and in a surprising and unexpected finale the two decks merge into one red/blue deck while in the hands of the spectator.

During the process of learning each separate part of the routine, the Wiz Kid learns: Who is Al Schneider? Shuffles and Cuts, False Counts, Pinky Break, Double Lift, Flipping a Spread, Outjogging a Card, Using Suggestion and superstition, Learning and using Patter, a simple Card Force, Spectator Management and Control, Misdirection, Gaffed Cards, Card splitting, Deck Switches and Vanishes. That seems like a lot for one routine, but it is broken into three parts, each of which must be mastered and performed as a separate effect before linking up the three parts to make one complete final routine. If a 10-year-old can master this, so can you!

Silver and Gold

Wiz Kids, like all kids, have trouble holding onto coins to use for performing magic, and their pocket change gets "accidentally" spent on other stuff that seems more important at the time. My solution for that is to teach them coin magic using plastic silver and gold coins that can't be spent. Later on, they can transfer what they learned for use with real coins ... or just keep on using the plastic coins. The audience does not have to know the coins are plastic because they can be made to sound like real metal coins if you know the secret. With real silver dollars currently selling for around $15.00, and real gold dollar coins selling for $1,500.00, it's a relief to know that these plastic coins can be bought by the bagful for a buck or two. 1 - Silver to Gold in Spectator's hand; 2 - Multiplying Silver and Gold coins; 3 - Ping Pong Coins Across from Hand to Hand; 3A- Alternate Ending - Gold & Silver Matrix Using 4 coins and 2 cards. Variations using Chinese coins are also included. Who is Martin Chapender, anyway? And who is Han Ping Chien? Lots to learn!
