Dr Will Houstoun

On this page you will find information about the tuition I offer to magicians, as well as a selection of products exploring technical and historical aspects of conjuring. My website’s main page details my work as a consultant, academic, and performer.


Professor Hoffmann, the subject of my PhD, famously said: “There is a vast difference between telling how a trick is done and teaching how to do it.” In both individual lessons and group lectures I try to teach people how to do better magic, whether that is by helping develop their existing material or sharing my own creations.


Lectures for magic clubs and societies.


Talks, lectures and shows for magic conventions.


Private tuition for all abilities.
