MyMagic eNewsletter #897
January 20, 2021
First, I want to thank everyone who purchased the autographed books from the last newsletter. They all sold out within a couple of hours. I did order more copies which should get here within a week or two. If you missed out, please sign up for notifications so the website instantly contact you when they arrive.
Breaking: At the last minute Kreskin agreed to give me all the copies he had left so there are a few available right now if you follow the above link. More will be here in around a week or so.
In 2004 when I was producing and releasing DVDs on a regular basis, I invested in a three-volume set of videos with Bill Wisch where he was going to share what he learned from his mentor Slydini and how he combined it with his Beat System to improve how sleight of hand is taught and the right way practice.
I was tied up with many other projects, so my friend Jon LeClair agreed to shoot and edit the videos. Bill flew to Florida where the project was shot and edited. For various reasons it has taken me this long to finalize the videos.
Volume one is highly informative, and you will learn how Slydini approached his magic and many of the secrets that made his magic look natural and miraculous. You are then going to learn Bill’s Beat System which can be used to learn and annotate any sleight or trick.
Bill Wisch is an expert magician and a long-time student and promoter of the magic of Slydini. Bill is also the only person who Slydini gave permission to lecture on his original routines and techniques.
Volume one is a masterclass on timing, rhythm, and misdirection. By studying what is on this video you will learn the many little secrets that made Slydini’s magic disarming and miraculous.
Routines and techniques performed and explained: Slydini’ s Poker Deal, Slydini Aces, Slydini’s Seated Timing & Lapping Techniques, Slydini’s Sugar Express, Slydini’s Napkin Ball Manipulation, Slydini’s Stand-Up Techniques, The Beat System, and much more.
This video lays the groundwork for the Close-Up Magic and Card Magic vidoes of the series, that feature many routines that incorporate the beat system of easily learning, annotating, choreographing, practicing, and performing the magic.

Stay Safe, Meir
PS: Been working on a non-magic secret project that I hope to share with you in a few months. It all comes to a head next Wednesday.
