Magic classes by Xakary the Magician, Seattle's Funniest Magician for Children and Families!

Empowering children by building communication skills and confidence through the art of magic

Hi parents and future magicians!

Looking for a fun class or camp for your 6- to 12-year old child where they can not only learn amazing magic, but also some great life skills, focused on building communication skills and confidence? You’ve come to the right place!

Is your child bored at home and wants to interact with other kids in a fun (and totally safe) environment? Again, you’ve come to the right place!

The award-winning Seattle Magic Academy is led by the the only magician in the Pacific Northwest to ever be voted through by the judges on America’s Got Talent, Xakary the Magician (he sawed celebrity judge Heidi Klum in half)! Xakary specializes in magic for children, and has taught thousands of children magic. Plus, we have other amazing performer/instructors.

The “Discover Magic” courses we offer are really a life skills course disguised as a magic class! But don’t tell your child that, they’ll be having so much fun learning magic they won’t even realize it!

BIG NEWS! We are now offering our courses online through Zoom! Check out the links below for our June offerings!

You can live anywhere in the USA (not just the Seattle area) to take our online classes, we will ship all the magic tricks and materials to your home!

Registrations are currently open for our camps running Monday June 8th through Friday July 3rd: Choose from any of our 4 wand courses (the magic is completely different in each wand course).

The course will last 4 weeks, 3 days a week, with each class between 60-75 minutes. All materials are provided, including custom magic tricks, “secret” file folders, access to a secret online video vault where you child can review all the magic taught in the course, focus on life skills, graduation certificate and magic wand, plus more surprises! All the materials will be mailed or delivered to the student’s home, with each day’s materials in a separate large envelope that will be opened during class.

Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday each week will be lesson days (see schedule below), and Fridays will be bonus days, during which students can get additional help, ask questions of Xakary (including what it’s like to be on America’s Got Talent), and get some extra fun.

July and August online courses will be announced soon. We will offer in-person classes in the Seattle area once stay-at-home restrictions are lifted. At this point, it’s unclear when that might be, and we anticipate offering online classes in addition to in-person classes. All of our spring “after-school” programs were held online to great success, kids had a blast getting to do magic at home and visit with their fellow students.

As a licensed, award-winning presenter of “Discover Magic”, we are thrilled to be able to bring our love of magic to children throughout the Seattle/King/Pierce county area.  We have four full 12-hour courses, each of which can be presented in a variety of formats:

  • 60- 75- or 90-minute sessions (once a week over an 8-10 week period, or twice a week over a 4-week period)

  • 5 3-hour sessions (great for a half-day one week camp during summer break or any school break week).

Don’t want to commit to a full course?  We have 2 60-90 minute workshops, “What is Magic?” and “Secrets of Magic” which we can bring to any location in Washington or Oregon state.  Attendees will receive a secret file folder and learn several tricks during the workshop, all different than the ones contained in the full course.


Our full courses are offered anywhere in King County, and the one-day workshops anywhere in Washington or Oregon State!  If you would like to bring the full course or one-day workshop to your neighborhood or school, fill out the form and let us know where you would like to see the class! 


We are now offering fun, interactive online magic courses through Zoom (see links above). We may offer in-person camps in the Seattle area as well once stay-at-home restrictions are lifted, but we will continue online classes through the summer.


We offer a FREE PTA kick-off magic show before every class registration, where Xakary will perform a short 10 minute show to help start one of your meetings or events, and promote the magic academy.
