Learning the ‘art of magic’ used to be pasted down from magician to magician, if you didn’t already have knowledge & skills you could not
find someone in the know to share info, ideas, and tricks with you.
Today’s generation is quick to learn on Youtube a trick or two. The plus to that is its instantaneous, the downside is you might be learning/watching someone who isn’t a good instructor/teacher. Or worse they teach incorrectly and you learn/practice the wrong techniques and now have to unlearn all the bad habits!
Learning any new skill or technique requires a good coach. Someone who not only can perform it properly, but can help other children learning the craft/sport, etc…how to improve upon what they are doing. A coach/instructor can make suggestions, offer creative ideas to improve their skills, knowledge, etc… that you can’t gain from just watching a video. Children need that feedback that directly corresponds to what they are particularly doing well, or need to change so they can perform it well!
