Who is Troy Mackinder?

Practically Speaking is a practical and easy to grasp technique for learning the American Accent. Troy is a passionate teacher who has spent over 12 years helping students fulfil their dreams.

Not only has he been a teacher for many years but he is an industry professional working on-set with actors such as Sam Neill, Claudia Karvan, Vince Colosimo, Jay Laga'aia, Michael Dorman, Isabel Lucas, Sebastian Gregory, Harrison Gilbertson, Harry Cook and so many more ... And he's CURRENTLY the Dialogue Coach on Stephen Spielberg's Terra Nova.

Troy has helped countless actors achieve their dream. He understands that voice training can be laborious and because of that has created this truly practical and easy approach to learning the accent. It's the same technique he uses on set!



Feeling like you will never get there?

You probably have had several auditions already and left promising yourself you would get a better accent for the next audition. Maybe you have been putting off the trip to LA or NY to follow your dream until you get the accent ready to go. Weeks roll into months and months into year.

Well it doesn't matter what you haven't done up to this point. It matters what you do right now. In Practically Speaking the technique has painstakingly been laid out to make learning the American Accent easy and practical. It allows actors to find the accent without having that annoying voice in your head telling you to "maintain the accent"

Learning the American Accent the RIGHT WAY?

That annoying voice in your head during auditions that says "maintain the accent" or worse it might even say "that accent is terrible" is one of the worst problems when doing an accent other than your own.

Well with Practically Speaking that voice in your head will disappear. This technique is unique in it's practical approach to the accent. It's easy! Practically Speaking teaches you to focus allowing you to change from "doing an accent" to just thinking about your acting.

Practically Speaking uses the most common academic knowledge but gives a practical and easy way to achieve the results without over analyzing the entire makeup of the accent. The book avoids the usual overload of academic based techniques and keeps the actor focused on their acting.

We have heard from many students that have bought other books or studied with other teachers and the most common statement is "I loved it when I was in the class, but I couldn't tell you where to start if I got a script". Well with Practically Speaking this is not the case. You will follow a script from receiving it from your agent to performing in the audition. The step by step instructions will leave you with no doubt about what you need to do when you receive the script.

And don't worry about the usual BORING voice learning. Practically Speaking has been taught by Troy Mackinder who is known for taking what can be the most boring part of acting training and making it fun. It's not good enough to just say "this is voice and so it has to be boring". Troy believes if you make things fun you will do them and if they are not fun you won't. With that in mind he has tried to make the learning as fun as it can be so you can get the job done!

Sound like YOU have been American your entire life.

More often than not when going to a voice teacher or accent coach you will be taught what Troy likes to call "the polite voice teacher voice". This consists of over pronouncing every word throughout. The problem with this is that NOBODY actually speaks that way. In Troy's years as an industry professional it is the most common thing he sees among actors. With Practically Speaking this is not the case. The entire approach acknowledges the conversational speech patterns and incorporates it's in into your training.

You will not be learning something that teaches you to sound like that "polite voice teacher". You will sound like you have been American your entire life! And more importantly you will sound like an actor who is competent and capable of landing the role. If that's what you want from your American Accent then this book is for you!

This book was made for Australians and New Zealanders can it work for me?

Troy has worked with all kinds of Nationalities and accent with AWESOME results. Troy did originally write this book with Australians and New Zealanders in mind as he resides in Australia. However the book focuses mainly on the American Accent with only some references to the Australian Accent. The American Accent does not change from one nationality to another.

Troy has used this book and his technique to help such accents as English (London), Northern England, Irish, South African and Italian and the results have been exceptional. Just see what Nino and Brian have to say.

“Troy's workshop was a revelation. As an actor, his technique is clear, analytical, almost scientific. This technical approach frees the actor of the cultural baggage which can infiltrate characterisation and render it stereotypical. It is a liberating technique! It is also deeply fascinating from a linguistic point of view. The analysis of language and the breakdown of syllables and their emphases is both logical and practical. It gets results! In a relatively short time, I was able to speak with an American accent which felt neither contrived nor forced. The accompanying book and cd are excellent resources and a valuable part of my acting toolbox. Thank you Troy for having the commitment to formulate what you know instinctively and for sharing it with the rest of us! Yours in gratitude, Nino” -- NINO ALESSI

“It was a pleasure editing this book for Troy who has a passion for assisting actors to find an accuracy and understanding of accents, particularly the transition from Australian to American. I have observed him work with both mature and younger actors and he has been effective with both. Even though this book is aimed at Australian actors, it is a book that should be of significant value to any non-American who takes on an American character.” -- BRIAN GILBERTSON
Internationally recognized opera singer

“Troy used a process in which he clearly analyzed and broke down each syllable and word thoroughly and systematically. He is a persistent and challenging teacher and warm and encouraging, these qualities and his teaching skills were very helpful in learning the American accent in an environment where it isn’t spoken. It was fun and a joy working with Troy, I feel that I can now approach any text with the knowledge and skills to confidently portray the standard American accent.” -- ISABEL LUCAS

“Troy’s approach to accent work and dialect training is very specific but not at all overwhelming. Not only did he ‘fine-tune’ what I thought I already knew, he opened my ears up to the subtle differences and rhythms the American accent has, something not always brought to our attention “down under”.
It was a pleasure to work with someone so committed and skilled and I would highly recommend Troy to anyone. I look forward to referring to his book for many years to come.” --

“Troy Mackinder is one of a kind. I was lucky enough to work with him as my dialect coach on the film “Accidents Happen” and he guided us through the process of becoming “American” in a way that didn’t feel forced or scary. He is a dedicated, intelligent and hilariously funny guy who made working on the movie a complete pleasure. Troy “Macattack” Mackinder is a true genius in teaching and a perfectionist who makes work fun and interesting. I couldn’t have done it without him!” -- HARRY COOK

“Troy Mackinder gave myself and my fellow actors in the feature film “Accidents Happen” dialect coaching through four weeks of intensive rehearsal and six weeks of shooting. Without Troy’s dedicated work the film would not have been possible, as nearly all of the cast were Australian. Troy “Macattack” Mackinder is a leader in his dialect work for Australians and I am grateful to him for that.” -- HARRISON GILBERTSON

“I just wanted to follow up from the workshop with an emailing personally thanking you for you enormous help on the weekend. I really found that the accent work complimented the acting work particularly when you got it off the page, connected to the text and really felt what you were saying. I also wanted to say a special thanks to you for helping me with the audition scene for PowerRangers, I had the call back today and it went as well as any audition can. So thank you eternally and all the best for the future.”
