how to make it a career

Being a magician can be amazing! Bewildering audiences with a pack of cards, performing the perfect escape, and doing the impossible. But you don't just become a good magician. Like anything, it takes time. It's up to you if it pays off.


In order to be a great magician, you must be able to work with varying crowds. From children to elderly, naive to skeptical, it's your job to keep them entertained. Your tricks must also have plenty of variety. If you are doing the same tricks over and over, your act will become boring. Practice is, however, the most important requirment. The more time you put into your tricks, the better you will become.


There is no real educational requirements, as there are no magic schools. However, an apprenticeship is recommended.


The income at first is very low, at a median of $49,000 a year, though with time this could go into the hundreds of thousands!

Future Outlook
