You Must Have a Powerful Message…

to gather and hold the attention of the crowd. Today’s audiences have short attention spans. In today’s fast-paced world, only those who have the skills to win the crowd will survive.

What can we learn from magicians? Here are the 3 rules of “Street Magic”

Find out the techniques used by master “crowd stoppers” by watching this short clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALE65MRP-hA

1. CAPTURE THE IMAGINATION - Use sound, color and movement to attract ALL of the senses.  Get people INVOLVED not “just watching.”

2. EN-TRANCE & MANAGE ATTENTION - Use the hypnotic language of storytelling, music, varied vocal VOLUME and pacing to connect and deepen the immediate experience.  Repetition and predictability are boring! Make your presentation a roller coaster ride.

3. MAKE THE MESSAGE MEMORABLE – Use “catch phrases,” hooks and visual metaphors to help the message “stick” in the memory.

This training is the THE REAL DEAL on Street Performing. If you EVER had the desire to live your dreams as a busker, this class will give you what you need to know.

Yes, Ross Johnson can detect objects while 100% blindfolded! He seems to have developed the ability to see without the use of his eyes! He can also teach you to manifest apparently psychic powers! I’m not kidding! You can even meet Ross here:

Join master hypnotist Richard Nongard and

World-renowned magician Jeff McBride

Jeff McBride’s Mystery School

in Las Vegas, NV

January 23-25, 2015

Magicians and mentalists will master the art of hypnotic language, directing audiences in new and powerful ways to accomplish routines that are spectacular.

A New Class

Hypnotists will learn the art of magic, illusion and mentalism and create unique skits that move far beyond what the standard stage hypnotist is offering.

You will be able to exemplify yourself in this intensive three day learning opportunity and you will have the personal attention of two masters within their craft.

This class is for magicians, mentalists, hypnotists and performers that desire to impact audiences with powerful demonstrations which others simply do not perform. You will be setting yourself, and your performance, apart from the rest by combining cognitive magic with innovative performance.

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

–Maya Angelou
