    Cool beyond one's years

    May "beyond one's years" be some sort of "idiom"?

    Not quite sure of its meaning at the following sentence:

    "He also marshalled gorgeous melodies to evoke a sophisticated , dreamlike world-weariness well beyond his years."

    Any help would be appreciated.
