Jules Semler-Collery (1902 - 1988) was a French composer, conductor and teacher.

Jules Semler-Collery was born in Dunkerque in 1902. His father, a conductor, was his first music teacher. Later he studied at the Paris Conservatoire, where he won several prizes, and also at the Schola Cantorum. He then studied with Vincent d'Indy and Paul Vidal.

Some of the concertos are included on the list of compulsory works at the Paris Conservatoire National Superieur, where Semler-Collery was often president of the jury.
