He has played pianino from childhood since he was 6 years old.
He has played pianino since childhood when he was 6 years old.
Sometimes people say ''I prefer A over B'' but I'v learned ''I prefer A to B''.
Are both correct?
Thank you in advance.

Does it mean there is no difference between 2 sences. If I use since or when the meaning of my sentences won't be changed.
Thank you for spending your time answering my question.
Both your original sentences are not natural English. Look at how BC used 'since ' and ' when: He has played the pianino since childhood. He started when he was 6 years old.
You could also simply say: He has played the pianino since he was 6 years old.
The age of 6 is clearly in his childhood, and if he has played 'since' then, it is clear that that was when he started.
