In 2007 Jim Turner was awarded his only music qualification, an Advanced Diploma in Music Industry Business with Distinction, He has had no other formal music training of any kind, he never studied music while at school he cannot read music or play piano. The song words were always written first and the music followed up to two years later. "Thy Will Be Done" was his first song, the words took an hour to write, but it took several months to complete the music. The music for most other songs was often written in a couple of hours or less and he knew instinctively when the song sounded right, even though he had no idea of how it was to sound before he began writing.
