Brad Burt Teaching DVD's

I don't know why I find it so difficult to use the hundreds of wonderful notes and letters on my instructional DVDs.  Feels funny, but online it's difficult to add that personal touch and so I offer a couple of recent ones below.  I ran four magic schools over a period of over 20 years and designed and taught literally dozens of classes on various forms of magic with an emphasis on sleight-of-hand with cards, coins, sponge, rings and more. 

Here's my guarantee and I really mean this:  If you want to learn how to handle cards WELL and do it in the shortest time possible and you are willing to practice......if my DVDs can't get it done, then I don't know what will.  Give one a try and see what happens.  Let me know, good or bad.  I really would like to hear from you!  All best,   Brad Burt

Hi Brad,
This has nothing to do with cups and balls, but I thought I'd share it with you.
I was going through my magic tapes this morning and came across your Private lesson Video series. I bought just about every major tape on coins a few years ago. I always write comments on each tape to remind me, at a later date, of my reaction to the tape and how I rate them compared to others.
My comments on your tapes were that "these are the best instructional coin videos I have seen."  I felt that the demonstrations were very clear and detailed. I felt that your demonstration of the Retention of Vision Vanish was by far the clearest and best I've seen and that "this guy is superb"
Anyway, you probably get tired of hearing all the accolades, but I thought I'd add to the list.
Best wishes.
Gary Moss

Brad,
Your stuff does & will always rock for me, especially your DVDs on cards. You give the info that isn't available anywhere else and it's detailed and understandable.   Your pal Billy

Yours are the only DVD's I can learn from as all the other 'guys' go much too fast and there is just not enough instruction on each technique." -B. Tophat "Hey Brad, thanks for the tips. I have almost all your videos on tape! Only missing two. I plan on buying all again on DVD. They are simply wonderful and were of immense help." -Sam "Brad, I don't know if you remember me, its been a long time since I ordered anything but I am back into it bigger then ever now and am trying for magician membership for the castle in July! I walked into your store 18 years ago on a lunch break by accident! (I was eating lunch at the Chinese place next door.) And you did some slight of hand for my secretary and I with coins and bam! I was hooked! I own all 17 of your tapes and I am about to re-order them again in DVD. I am writing you because I want you to know that I own more then 125 teaching DVD's and tapes currently and have been in and out of magic all my life. I am talking about great tapes, by names like Ammar, McBride, Roth, (Who I just met personally in New York 2 weeks ago, he gave me a private performance that was "off the hook") So...What's the bottom line? You may wonder, well, there are no tapes on the market in my humble opinion, better then your "Private Lesson" series. No one, I mean . . .
