Werner is the son of Wilfried Kurt Stolze. At the age of 8 Werner appeared in the first publication for pianos printed in the Beeld Newspaper (22 July 1988) as well as the Verwoerdburg News in 1995.

In 2002 Werner did his first professional tuning of a grand piano under the watchful eye of his father. In 2014 he appeared in a publication of the Pretoria Get It Magazine, dubbed the Piano Whisperer.
