Classically trained, four-time Emmy-award-winning composer Julie Bernstein earned her Bachelor of Arts in theory and composition from the University of California at Santa Barbara. She spent an illuminating year at the Paris American Academy of Fine Arts, after which she was a graduate in composition at California State University of Northridge. Julie completed the Composing and Arranging Program (CAP) and the Film Scoring Program (with Allyn Ferguson) at the Dick Grove School of Music, and attended the Lehman-Engel Musical Workshop (as a composer working with lyricists) and UCLA Extension film composer workshop and classes with Don B. Ray.

Julie has had the good fortune to work on multiple classic animated television series as composer, orchestrator, song-writer, arranger and singer. Some of those include Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, Freakazoid!, Histeria!, Make Way for Noddy, and Baby Looney Tunes. She and her composer husband, Steve Bernstein, have collaborated on numerous projects, including cartoon series, CDs, independent films and chamber music. Most recently (2022), they scored and recorded with live orchestra Animaniacs Reboot and also Diabolical:Laser Baby's Day Out, an animated short for the series "The Boys", for which they were nominated for an Emmy (Animaniacs Reboot) and a Hollywood Music in Media Award (Laser Baby's Day Out).

Julie’s choral and concert music has been performed in Los Angeles, and her string quartet arrangements can be heard on Tierney Sutton’s Grammy-nominated album “After Blue” played by the Turtle Island String Quartet, on renowned opera singer Natalie Dessay's album "Pictures of America" and on Sophie Carpenter's album "No Room at the In".

Nominated for two Annie awards, 18 Emmys, Hollywood Music in Media Awards (HMMA) and semi-finalist in chamber music for The American Prize, Julie has won four Emmy awards for her work on Histeria! and Animaniacs. She also won the 1996 Network Award for Music Package/Sound Design for her arrangement and orchestration of the Warner Brothers interstitial Crazy Careers.
