Achieve MASTERY In The Art Of Magic
If you've been studying magic for a while, you'll know it's a really rewarding pursuit
But have you ever felt any of these frustrations?
Sometimes it can be tough to know the best way to study, and it can be even harder to motivate yourself to actually put the work in.
And it doesn't help that magic companies are bombarding us with gimmicked one trick releases that are 'easy'.
'Easy' doesn't make us better - but it's what sells.
My goal has always been to master the craft. I want to be like my heros in magic. I want to get as skilled as possible!
I think there's a lot of people like me, who want to, as grandiose as it sounds, achieve mastery - not just learn a bunch of tricks.
Think about it, if you achieve MASTERY, you'll be able to...
PERFORM INCREDIBLY STRONG MAGIC
Whether a trick is easy or difficult wouldn't be relevant.
You'd learn the best method, regardless of difficulty.
Captivate your audience
Your showmanship and entertainment skills would be high.
You'd have a unique style, bringing YOU to performances, not just cloning other entertainers.
create your own incredible effects
You'd understand exactly what it takes to create a powerful effect that astonish audiences.
If you share these aims, I can help you.
Introducing Magic Mastery
Magic Mastery is a membership program for magicians that share the same vision of mastery (that's why it's in the title!).
Imagine a study group of magicians that come together to learn magic technique, showmanship skills, and study great performers in our industry.
It's for people who want to become truly great and aren't afraid to put in the work to do so.
Before I get into specifics, let me tell you a little about myself. After all, who am I to create this membership?
Who am I?
My name is Steven Bridges. I've been studying magic for 18 years.
My performances on YouTube have been viewed over 26,000,000 times and I've gained a subscriber base of nearly 200,000.
I've been trusted by huge movie studios to work with celebrities such as Donald Glover and Brad Pitt on films as a magic consultant.
I've done thousands of street performances as well as working in high end venues such as The Playboy Club in London as the resident magician.
I also have a nice beard - but maybe that's less relevant?
By no means am I a master, I'm still putting my 10,000 hours in!
But after years of trial and error studying magic,
I understand what it takes to achieve mastery.
And I want to help you achieve it.
Magic Mastery Members get all of this...
For Magic Mastery Plus, every quarter I choose a high quality book I think will add value and improve your skills as a magician and ship you that book.
The community studies this book together and I provide videos to help explain sleights and routines, as well as my own ideas and adaptations of some of the effects.
Win Win Win - You learn better, the author is supported, the publisher is supported.
I break down your performances as well as my own past performances and performers that we admire. I explain what works well and what could be improved.
I take the best advice in showmanship and magic theory and break it down into easy to understand videos with examples. Please don't underestimate how useful this will be. THIS is what helps you become one of the greats.
Sleights and techniques
I don't believe in taking the 'easy route'. I believe in taking the route that's the most effective to achieving the desired effect. That's why there's an ever growing library of useful sleights and techniques I feel like more magicians need to know.
Strong magic effects to add to your arsenal including some of my own material I've never published before.
I set challenges that are designed to help you improve as a magician. Members that opt in to a challenge are given a specific set of criteria to work with. Challenges are a great way to push yourself and members have seen noticeable improvements after completing a challenge.
a supportive COMMUNITY
Have you ever chimed in with a question on a magic forum only to be cut down by other magicians for asking a 'stupid question'? I've avoided magic forums for years for this reason. Together, we are creating a facebook community that supports each other and helps each other grow. Anyone not inline with our community guidelines will be removed from the membership. It's that simple.
When you join as a 'Magic Mastery Plus' member, you're shipped your first book...
GAME CHANGER by JASON LADANYE
It contains some incredibly strong and well thought out card magic that you WILL perform!
It retails at $60.
(All books are covered by Magic Mastery Plus membership - you don't pay extra!)
Videos are added to help breakdown the routines and sleights in the book.
In the members area, you get instant access to:
Performance Analysis Videos
Learn from my breakdown of member's performances.
Easy to apply, results focused theory videos that help enhance your performances.
A library of practical and useful card/coin sleights to add to your arsenal.
Four of my own, never released before routines that have been watched over 1 million times on YouTube.
Two challenges you can take part in straight away to make improvements to your magic.
Thought Link (cheeky bonus)
I've also thrown in my ebook Thought Link, which Atlas Brookings said, "should be in every 21st century Mentalist's repertoire".
Here's what Magic Mastery Members say...
The amount, but also the quality of advice I get on how to improve my magic from Steven, but also from other members, is worth the monthly subscription alone, not to mention mind blowing effects and sleights Steven teaches on the platform.
Finally, Steven is a suuuuper nice guy and getting a cheerful comment from him always makes my day!
Magic Mastery has been an amazing resource and community since I joined. Steven is an amazing teacher and his videos are high quality making it very easy and enjoyable to follow along.
The first challenge got me off my butt and thinking about structuring routines and how it flows. Currently working on the second challenge that Steven has issued, and it really is motivating to see other people take part.
I think it’s a brilliant resource, especially the video tutorials for the ideas in books, it really helps to be able to follow along.
As we know, anyone can do a magic “Trick”.
However, if you are serious about your magic and want to learn how to make that “trick” truly magical, I highly recommend Steven Bridges’ Magic Mastery [membership].
[Steven] is a superb teacher. The content provided in the course is fun, clearly explained and demonstrated.
Two pretty darn excellent options to choose from!
Excellent value and a ton of content

I'm a beginner, is this for me?
Magic Mastery is designed for intermediate and advanced performers.
The minimum skill level required is to have a solid understanding of the fundamentals.
I'm a mentalist, is this for me?
Mentalism is covered at times, but it is not the main focus.
Mentalists will find the value in the theory videos and video breakdowns but will get less out of the sleights and effects.
What if I already own the book?
If you already own Game Changer or any of the future books, upon proof of purchase you will receive a one month credit that comes off your next billing cycle.
You will still have access to the book specific content.
Are you gonna teach me a ton of new tricks?
You will learn strong magic effects from the books selected as well as the tutorials section.
If your focus is to mainly learn a load of new
tricks, Magic Mastery isn't a good fit for you.
What if I don't like the upcoming book?
MM+ members can 'opt out' of receiving a particular book and receive a one month credit that comes off your next billing cycle.
You will not have access to the book specific content for an opt out book.
Is it all Card Magic?
No. Although the focus is on close-up magic, so naturally we will cover a lot of cards.
When a book is heavily cards I make sure I balance it with adding none-card items to the sleights/effects sections.
Is this different from other memberships?
Yes. MM focuses on 'Mastery' and the whole membership is driven by that ethos.
The content focuses on what members need to get better.
Why so cheap/expensive?
Magic Mastery takes a lot of work to run and provide content and challenges that help.
I've tried to keep the cost affordable and for what you get I think it's really fair.
What's the shipping time?
Book processing is done one week after your join date. For most US/UK members, books arrive within a couple of days after being processed, but for a couple of international members (New Zeland & India) it has taken up to a month.
