Neither of your sentences agrees with the tag "past-tense" and neither of them is correct.

You should use the Past Simple here:

  • I studied piano from age 6 to 15.
3
  • Although both sentences could be fine if the speaker was 15.

    Sure, but I think it’s important to talk about exceptions when saying something is “incorrect”.

In your examples

I have been studying...

means you are still studying, whereas

I have studied piano from age 6 to 15.

may mean you want to say you studied for a while but no longer, better might be

I studied piano from age 6 to 15.
I took piano (lessons) from age 6 to 15.
