I’m wondering what prompted you to ask the question…

It depends on the student, the parent and the teacher. My oldest student started when he was six. He’s now 17 and in book 7. He also has gone through book 1 a second time playing all the pieces in 12 keys. He and his sister ( started at age 5 and now in book 6) are nearing the end of book 2 in all the keys. I also have them on a jazz curriculum and have added an occasional pieces and duets outside the books.. So, you see, there is no real answer to your question. It depends on how broadly you want to expand their abilities.
