The Piano Whisperer

 

My passion for pianos has been around for decades… I take pride in my workmanship, assuring you that you have made the right choice. Werner Stolze.

 

A truly inspiring story to be told of how it came to be that Werner Stolze attends to pianos by tuning and maintaining them, and how it stays a passion to this day. Werner Stolze was born on the 19th of December 1979 and became the fourth generation of a very well know family of piano builders straight out of Germany. With a rich and truly inspiring history and childhood behind him, it is no wonder that pianos have been in his blood since a very young age. Being the kind and caring family man that he is, it enables him to keep doing what he does with the greatest of ease. Being so caring makes him put more than just work into pianos, he puts his entire soul in. In 2002 Werner Stolze did his first ever professional tuning of a grand piano and he has received many praises for his work. Werner was mentored and trained by a true legend in the art of piano building and that is his late father, the one and only Wilfried Stolze. Having a very soft spot in his heart for children it is no wonder that he has so many specials for schools, thus ensuring the children a finely tuned and maintained piano at their school. Every piano that he works on is treated as if it is a part of the family, not just being a musical instrument. No job is ever too big or to small, to the end of the earth he will go to ensure that every piano owner is satisfied with the workmanship he so dearly takes pride in. Recently Werner had the opportunity to attend to pianos overseas in Europe and the Middle East. This has broadened his knowledge and experience even more. With the knowledge gained overseas he can now bring some of it back with him to the schools around South Africa. The ambition to start a training centre for piano technicians for this rare and much specialised trade came to be when he enrolled his very first apprentice in 2015. Hopefully he will have even more in the years to come. A great amount of attention is put into following special occasions throughout the year and to ensure that they are attended too. Werner makes the effort to send out messages of well wishes to all students with their exams, being musical or academically. WS Pianos offer great deals to schools in order to assist them in maintaining their pianos so that the children can leave school with a tune in their steps and a melody in their hearts. The service given by Werner is top notch, five-star quality and beyond…
