Bernard Rogers (1893-1968) was an American composer and music teacher.

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. Awards and recognitions include a Pulitzer traveling scholarship (1921), Guggenheim Fellowship (1927-1929), Juillard commission (1947), Fulbright Award (1953), and Ford Foundation commission (1960), as well as honorary degrees from Valparaiso University (1959) and Wayne University (1962). Rogers was a member of the National Institute of Arts and Letters and the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, and a patron of Delta Omicron, an international professional music fraternity.
