I started aged 4 or 5 and stopped for 1 year when I was 12 as my teacher was away.
Passed Grade 8 at 15.
There's nothing wrong with how old you started playing as long as you've already started
Some people simply didn't get to start young due to various probs.......Remember, age is just a number(although it's obvious that it's easier to learn at younger age).

Started at age 6. Now, 30 years and 6 teachers later, still only grade 8.
Hey, I think I'm just gonna be stuck at grade 8 forever although I passed this grade 10 years after I started learning( more or less ).

hey i was kinda wierd....
....i started playing piano about 7 months ago now and im starting my grade 6 pieces next week!!!
im 15 btw
i took my first lesson and my teacher decided that i should start at grade 3...i just found it realy easy...anyway i had learned all my g3 pieces within 4 weeks and i had just missed an exam deadline so my teacher moved me on to grade 4 and when i learned all 3 g4 pieces in 6 weeks....i was moved on AGAIN!!!
i have been working on my grade 5 for a few months because of exams so i havent had alot of practice time but i passed it not long ago!!
so.....onto grade 6....maybe i can do 6 grades in a year!!!
