Student of the Month – Willie Yee
Meet the Master of Vulcan Magic!

Willie Yee, M.D. came to magic late in life, at the age of 72, several years after he had retired from a career as a psychiatrist. He was involved in a Star Trek fan film project where he met Terry Morgan, a student of Walter Gibson. Terry took him under his wing, and soon declared that Dr. Yee was the fastest learning student he ever had. Dr. Yee decided to combine his passion for magic with his love of Star Trek and science fiction, and developed the character of S’kai, Vulcan’s Greatest Magician.
From the beginning however, his major motivation was to learn magic that he could use in his work as a Red Cross volunteer. He thought that magic would be a way to introduce himself to disaster survivors. “I soon found that magic was not an introduction to mental health interventions, but in fact was the intervention. Giving shelter residents a magical memory, not only lifts them out of a miserable situation, but generates a memory that can compete with the trauma of a disaster,” says Dr. Yee. He has since developed a program to teach Red Cross shelter volunteers magic so they can interact and perform with shelter residents. 
After several years of working with Terry Morgan, Terry said that it was time to move to the next level, and encouraged him to take a Master Class at the McBride Magic and Mystery School. “It was a life-changing experience. It changed not only how I did magic, but also the place that magic had in my life.” 
In 2020, he was able to adapt his shows to internet performance with the help of courses and another Master Class at the Mystery School. As a result, he was able to do more performances that year than he could have, had he only been doing in-person shows.  Dr Yee wishes you all to live long and prosper.

Our magic community lost two great friends this month.
Siegfried was a frequent guest teacher here at Mystery School.
I had the honor of being Siegfried’s close-up magic teacher, and visited him often in his palatial home with partner Roy. The magic duo changed the face of magic with their epic style and show with wild animals. He was a great supporter of our magic school and shared his wisdom with many of our students. He will be greatly missed. His magic was truly inspiring!

David Roth is a legend in the world of magic. I had the pleasure of sharing many magical days with him at Tannen’s magic shop back in the 70’s & 80’s. David was quick to share his wisdom teachings with all the aspiring magicians who gathered around him.  I so loved his magical coin creations. David’s life and legacy will live on with his many contributions to our magic community …Bon voyage dear friend.
One more thought…

May the new year bring you good health and opportunities to explore new worlds of magic. 
Yours in the art of mystery
