National Educational Program Co-Created by Famed, Award-Winning Magician Michael Ammar Teaches Essential Life Skills to 8-12 Year Olds Discover Magic, an innovative national educational program specially designed to teach key life skills to 8-12 year olds through the process of learning to perform magic has announced that the Mystery Of Magic School will be the exclusive site in Orlando Florida, with classes running year round. Classes will be led by local magician William Green who has been performing for 10 years and is the owner of Special Event Entertainment (A mobile entertainment event company).
The concept for the course was developed and researched for over twenty years by internationally-known award winning magician and educator Michael Ammar, but it finally came to life when Brian South and Michael Rosander joined the team; both experts in the field of creative educational entertainment for children. Studies have shown practicing the art of magic helps students to build key qualities like self-discipline, self-confidence and interpersonal abilities. In fact, scientists frequently study magicians’ techniques to gain new insight into how the human mind works.
The Discover Magic course is an educational program specifically designed to teach not just magic, but how to interact successfully with other people. In fact, it’s best described as a life skills course camouflaged to look like a magic lesson. Kids become so engrossed and entertained in learning and performing the magic tricks they don’t realize they’re also developing incredibly valuable communication skills. Indeed, many opportunities for performing magic tricks arise later in adulthood, whether as an ice breaker for a businessman or a doctor who uses magic tricks to put their young patients at ease. Every Discover Magic class features custom created props, one of the Traits of a True Magician, Top Secret Private files for every child and even special Bonus material the kids can unlock with a secret code after class. The tricks taught are specially designed for small hands and first time learners, that will not only fool adults, but will develop and unlock exciting possibilities in every child.
