In addition to her musical studies from New York University, she studied at New York College of Music and Westminster Choir College in Princeton, N.J. Jenkins-Wisner was music director for numerous Off-Broadway musical productions and also appeared in several movies, including "The Cotton Club." She served as director and organist for church gospel choirs, and taught music in the New York City public school system. Her recordings include "Meditation," "Lillette Jenkins Live at Chez Josephine's," and "Lillette Plays Music of Lil Armstrong."
