Pete Wernick of Niwot, CO is renowned worldwide for his accomplishments and contributions to bluegrass music: the hot-picking force in several trend-setting bands including Hot Rize, innovative teacher and author, songwriter, and long-term President of the International Bluegrass Music Association.

Pete was the original pioneer of bluegrass music camps in the early 1980s. Having since taught about 200 camps in about half of the U.S. states and three other countries, he continues to host several per year, including a Colorado Banjo Camp this August, still taking registrations.

In 2010, he launched the Wernick Method of teaching bluegrass jamming which as of 2021 has certified over 100 teachers offering classes in 46 states and 11 countries. See Pete’s full bio.

Pete’s students say:

“I have never had so much valuable information and real teaching in such a short period of time.”
“Pete Wernick is a master teacher with decades of experience in promoting and advancing bluegrass education at all levels. His methods seriously address the fact that most pickers quit while still at a beginning level due to the use of ineffective materials and methods. His approach quickly leads one to becoming an independent and successful learner.”
“I truly am happy that I have been able to attend your camps and never expected to be in this position to enjoy playing so much.”
“I have been waiting to start playing real bluegrass with people for quite a while, and now I can.”
