To be able to: Usos naturais

Hi!

I'd like to know if the sentences below sound natural to a native speaker. Could you help me?

"My daughter has been able to read since she was 4."
"I've been able to play the piano since I was 10."
"My son has been able to write since he was 5."

Thanks in advance!
