To put it simply we are leveraging the power and excitement of learning magic secrets to get kids to put down their electronic devices and learn important social skills that will last a lifetime.
Get ready to take an amazing adventure into the exciting world of magic. Learn how to make things appear, read people’s minds, and even make objects levitate.
Discover Magic students go home confident and ready to share what they have learned with family and friends. Plus, each magic trick reinforces a critical life skill that goes way beyond the magic.
Each course comes with custom, high quality magic props, top secret file folders, and special secret words to unlock bonus instructional videos in the online video vault.
All four courses, each with completely different magic tricks and a unique focus, reinforce the exact same 8 traits: A true magician is: Respectful, Prepared, Enthusiastic, Confident, Humble, Creative, Authentic, and Giving.
Each course is broken down into two semester offerings allowing for deep and meaningful learning to take place. On completion of their first semester students earn their certificate of advancement and after completing their second semester students earn their colored graduation wands (Much like karate belts).
This life changing magic program builds self-confidence and develops critical communication skills in a fun and unique way that is guaranteed to unlock your child's potential and impact the rest of their life.

“Great class. Definitely one of the best zoom classes I’ve seen during this time.”
“You are one of the few people we've experienced who can really pull this kind of thing off online! Thank you so much for all you do, and making it so easy for us parents to know how to support our kiddo throughout.”
Ryan really enjoyed your camp this week and has been so excited to show us the tricks he’s learned. I tried to avoid listening to too much of the class so that I wouldn’t learn the secrets behind the tricks, but from what I did overhear, I have to say that your ability to keep the kids engaged was so impressive. We will gladly sign up for future class you offer!”
“Wanted to let you know that Christopher really likes you class! He has taken several other classes but yours seems to he his favorite!”
“Thanks so much for a great week! Caleb looked forward to magic camp every day. We will for sure sign him up for another course soon.”
“Thank you for a great week! Kaden had an awesome time”
“Thanks for making these two hours a day super fun for Harrison.”
“Brian, thank you so much! Sammy is absolutely loving your magic camp!”
“My son took your class last week and loved it. Loved it so much my older son (he's 11) is interested in taking it too.”
“Hi Brian, I want to thank you for the amazing job you did on Zoom teaching magic. It wasn't something I could imagine happening but you did a very good job of keeping the kids engaged and I know Mateo had a great time. I wish some of the other Zoom classes he has taken has brought the same energy.”
“My son was SO excited to participate each day, with his enthusiasm only building as the week went on. He was genuinely sad when the final class ended & would definitely want to do another program with Brian.
I really can’t overstate how meaningful it has been for him to have this creative outlet, connecting with others during such isolated times, and he has spoken so highly of
Brian. I’m truly grateful for this past week, & wish you the best.”
“Zooms and video conferencing is a whole different world for my introvert kid, and she talks aloud more in your Magic workshop than she does in her daily class Zooms.
I recognized that during the 2nd week of magic classes and was appreciative that she had a small, structured group to practice interacting with, especially as it looks like this format may continue into the fall ... any practice getting comfortable with it is good for her!”
Brian Scott’s Bay Area School of Magic, featuring the internationally recognized Discover Magic Curriculum is proud to partner with the following locations:
Discover magic is a premium magic course designed by a team of award winning magicians and created specifically to help children develop critical people skills that are quickly fading in today's technology centric society.
We like to say this is not a magic class with life skills sprinkled in, it is a life skills course that also teaches magic. Each class features one of the 8 traits of a true magician and the kids learn tricks and watch videos that reinforce these traits.
Yes, magic is an interactive art. We feel the most important benefits to be derived from magic come from performing for others. There is a complex cycle of verbal and non-verbal communication flowing between the performer and the people watching that is unique to magic. So we’ve developed a system that will insure every child gets to perform for someone, several times, in the positive, nurturing classroom environment.
Yes. We have created a totally safe and nurturing environment for your child's first few magic performances inside every class, and try particularly hard to insure a child's confidence has every opportunity to grow from the very beginning.
Absolutely. To begin, it's unlikely they would have learned any of these specific tricks any place else. Plus, we believe that just knowing the secret to how something is done is only the beginning. The really important things magic has to offer a child will come from learning the 8 traits of a true magician and applying them.
Discover Magic features a wide range of tricks from making things appear and disappear to reading minds and passing a solid through a solid. Many of these tricks are unique to our program and they all feature a kid friendly presentation.
Yes! We teach a wide variety of magic tricks and many will legitimately fool adults. Others may not, but they serve a purpose in teaching the kids how to respond in a variety of situations. For example, someone saying "Can I see that?" or "I think I know how you did that."
Yes. Every magic trick is simple enough for a beginner and designed for small hands. No prior experience or magic classes are necessary.
Yes. Even if your child has never expressed interest in magic, most kids love watching and learning magic tricks. Usually after the firstclass your child will be thrilled they are learning the secrets to magic!
