About Us

Lark In The Morning has been selling musical instruments from around the world since 1974. Founded by Mickie Zekley (read more about Mickie's adventures here), it started as a mail order company and grew to a thriving enterprise with storefronts in San Francisco, Seattle and Mendocino. Mickie and his wife Beth also started a summer music camp, Lark Camp, which now has over 600 participants and instructors from around the world each summer in the redwoods of Mendocino.

Lark's new home in Berkeley, now open!

Mickie and Beth first sold Lark in the Morning in 2002. By the end of 2010, when Mickie and Beth got the business back, all the stores had closed and the business had moved entirely online. 

In January 2017 I purchased Lark in the Morning and have moved the business to the San Francisco Bay Area, in Berkeley. Our new storefront opened in November 2017. Bay Area folks, please stop by!
