It is real. But no, magick is NOTHING (sorry for using caps, just trying to get a point across) like what is portrayed in shows like Charmed and Harry Potter. You must want to learn and understand that magick has limitations, because in the real world there is such thing as the laws of nature and physics, thus why one cannot pic up a broom and fly. Also, you will hear a lot of this on this site, but despite how much someone tries to convince you otherwise, there is absolutely no such thing as vampires, werewolves, or anything of the like that isn't human. Magick cannot change physical DNA in any way shape or form. Also, before you try to attempt any magick, it is essential to learn and master the basics to have even some chance of success, which aren't that basic, in spite of their name. So, I hope that starts you off in clearing some of the beginning fuzz.
