Hey guys last night was my first performance not for many people only like ten but I thought I did ok!

I performed:
Striking Silver
Invisible Deck
Out Of This World
Triumph
leaving home
and bermuda triangle (coin change)

Were those good choices?

If you entertained your audience they were good choices.

The choices were good. However the question to really ask is, was my performance entertaining? if your audience responded well and were genuinely entertained then you did a good job. Take the items you performed and try to see them from the audiences' perspective, look for improvements, refine the details. It is in concentrating on the details that make the overall performance shine. One of the most effective things you can learn is to see your performance from your audiences perspective. Good Luck!

I agree with Jim, if the audience liked them, then they were good choices. One could choose the most expensive tricks to perform, but if the audience didn't really like the effects, one could say they weren't the right choices. It not necessarily how hard or easy the trick is, but it's mostly in the presentation and the patter.

If you heard the sound of crickets and saw only blanks stares then you should take that as not a good sign. Just having the people in front of you "wanting" to be entertained is half the battle. The other half is presentation, interaction, and above all keep them intrigued. You and your audience want to remember the performance with fond memories.
