I just wished I had only one professor as brilliant and interesting as Dr Houstoun way back when I was in college. Each of his answers to whatever questions being asked are like mini lectures in their own right. Even if you didn't use any of the moves or tricks taught, but believe me you will, simply sitting down to watch him perform and listen to his explanations would be more than worth the price of admission. The best university course I have ever attended!
Day 2 - matching decks routine worth the cost of the course - been practising the colour change from yesterday all day . Best card lecture I have attended in a long time.
I am only half way through watching the live first lecture - and it is fantastic ! I was fortunate enough to see Will in a small lecture in June 2015 in Reading. I was totally blown away by his Coins Matrix. Tonight, I am able to watch him perform and I can enjoy it without any distractions. The Alakazam Academy means I can re-watch the lecture to catch the bits that I really want to focus on. I love the various camera angles. I have attended all of the Alakazam Academy lectures and will keep doing so, as the standard is excellent. I really enjoy hearing the thoughts and comments of other students. Will explains everything really well and makes it a joy to learn from him.
I enjoyed this and got 2 moves that will fool my colleagues worth the cost of the lecture. Still got tomorrow night to go.
Half way through day one and off to a great start. After some interesting discussion at the start the lecture begins with an interesting method to locate the 4 aces from a shuffled deck. This is something I've tried to play with during the break and I'm thinking about using from now on. Then into an effect from The Notebook which was pretty good but I loved the work on the colour change, particularly the discussion about the natural hand positions in various corners. If the rest of this continues as strong as the first quarter, and as well as the coin course, I'm sure it will be great!
Will is as interesting when he talks about card as coin and this course is as good as last time. It would be sad to miss that!
What an elegant chap with an elegant mind. His thinking is as refined as his card handling. A pleasure to spend some time with Mr Houston.
Just one word: "Wow, wow and wow again!" OK, these are five words I guess... "Fantastic!" then. Can't wait for Day 2!
"Teaching is a work of the heart". Very apt quote for Dr. Will. His teaching is informative but so interesting. His tricks are simply magical. The first trick on day one is simply worth the whole course alone. Such a brilliant principle that I'd never seen or read before. I have completed many, many courses with Alakazam. This is a strong contender for the most powerful and informative. This will take many repeat viewings. All easy enough with Alakazam's brilliant concept.Write Review
