Possible Chops was founded by drummers Dave Hooper and Gary Novak. Both Gary and Dave grew up together in Glenview, IL and took their first drum lesson together from Joe Varhula. Now they are teaching together on Possible Chops.
Dave moved to California in 1980 and began working with his father, composer/pianist Les Hooper.
Back in Chicago, Gary attended college and gigged with his father, composer/pianist Larry Novak.
Then in 1986, Novak moved to LA and became Dave’s roommate where they spent countless hours jamming in their garage.
They each have become major players in the music/drumming scene and have collaborated on this project to bring some of the most “ridiculous” drumming techniques to the web.
