About Monty The Magician
Monty Goodrum aka Monty the Magician, is a local Houston area entertainer specializing in children's MAGIC for the last 30 years.
As a child, Monty was introduced to the world of MAGIC when a magician performed at his elementary school. It was the smiles and laughter Monty experienced and witnessed that day which inspired him to pursue a hobby of MAGIC. This love of MAGIC quickly developed into a career of bringing joy, excitement and laughter to all children.
Through the years, Monty has performed thousands of shows at all types of children events including schools, churches, libraries, day care centers, malls, boys and girls scout troops, apartment communities and birthday parties.
In addition to performing hundreds of shows each year, Monty also operates "Monty's School of MAGIC" which can be found in after-school programs and camps all around the Houston area. "Monty's School of MAGIC" features the internationally acclaimed Discover MAGIC Curriculum which is a life skills course cleverly camouflaged as a MAGIC class!
Monty is super excited to be part of the Discover MAGIC family. He believes passionately in the message taught throughout the course, especially "The Eight Traits of a True Magician" which make up the core of the Discover Magic program. These traits are: Respectful, Prepared, Enthusiastic, Confident, Humble, Authentic, Creative and Giving.
The classes are designed with FUN in mind! The kids will have a blast learning how to amaze their family and friends with "real" MAGIC. They will also be surprised by their own self-discoveries and the potential they possess to be successful in life.
In 2017 Monty was presented with the Gold Key of Excellence in Las Vegas recognizing him as a licensed instructor of the Discover Magic Curriculum. In addition to this certification, Monty is also a member The International Brotherhood of Magicians, Society of American Magicians, Texas Association of Magicians and the Fellowship of Christian Magicians.
