On completion of semester 1 students earn their certificate of advancement and after completing semester 2 students earn their colored graduation wand (Much like karate belts).

Part Lesson - Part Show - All Fun!
Children learn what magic really is and how they can perform magic at their own home to their friends and family. They will discover how magic is found in Math, Science, Art, History and more.
'What Is Magic' workshop is perfect for educational programs.
The Secrets of Magic show is an interactive 45-minute confidence building workshop where the magician doesn’t do any of the tricks! Instead, audience are brought up on stage and to their amazement, they perform all of the magic.
In this show students take the very special Oath of a True Magician, promising to have fun, respect others and of course to never reveal the secrets.
The shows purpose is to build confidence in kids, help them believe in themselves, to discover that they can do anything and that they are the magic.
Magic Words is an interactive 45 minute Anti-bullying magic show, in which we never mention anything about or say the word bullying. Instead, we focus on the power of words and how by using positive words, specifically what we call MAGIC POWER WORDS, it helps kids focus on kindness, stop bullying and realize that the words we use are full of power.
Throughout the performance they visually see and experience the magic and come to realize that they have the magic power inside of them to make a difference in people.
The 8 Magic POWER words we focus on are: Hello, Please, Thank You, I’m Sorry, I Forgive You, I Understand, Great Job and I Can.
Along with this program, children can receive a top-secret file folder that not only reinforces everything taught, but has extra tricks, games and challenges to help them increase in their awareness and power of communication.

“Your curricular materials, the site, the products, your emails - so above and beyond. Far more than just magic tricks!”
Brook C. - Parent, Richmond
"Typically a shy boy with adults, after his classes, our son would come home and perform for everyone and anyone. He was eager to practice and show off his new skills with the added flares and dramatics one expects from a magic show. It was awesome to see him like this. The class allowed him to meet new kids and learn and practice a new talent which inevitably boosted his self confidence and social skills.”
Melissa M. - Parent, San Leandro
"The class Is AWESOME! It is exceeding all expectations we would ever have for a magic class. As a parent, I am so grateful for having such a high caliber, fun and real life applicable class for my son."
Alissa H. - Parent, El Cerrito

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!
