Alsatian organist and composer Bernhard Schmid the Elder was the son of another Bernhard Schmid, an administrative official in the then free city of Strasbourg. 

Schmid was educated in Strasbourg and first mention of him comes from his marriage certificate dated October 31, 1552. In 1562, Schmid assumed the dual posts of organist at Strasbourg Cathedral during the Christmas season and at the Thomaskirche in Strasbourg through the rest of the year. His son, also named Bernhard Schmid (now called "the younger") was born in 1567.

In 1577, Schmid the Elder published Zwey Bücher einer Neuen Kunstlichen Tabulatur auff Orgel und Instrument, an important and popular early print consisting of two volumes.
