Whether he's coaching on a set or in a lecture hall, Troy's completely different approach to the American accent puts actors at ease and makes learning the American accent less of a daunting task.
Troy has an Bachelor of Fine Arts, Associates Degree and Cert IV certification. With more than 10 years teaching experience, he has developed this unique approach to learning the American accent.
