Born in New York City, Rogers studied at the Institute of Music Art in New York. He married his first wife Ann, with whom he had a daughter; after Ann's death he married Elizabeth Mary Clark in 1938.

Rogers taught at the Eastman School of Music for nearly forty years (1929-1967), as well as teaching at the Cleveland School of Music and the Hartt School in Connecticut.
