Shawn has been our daughters violin teacher for over two years and will be hopefully for many more years to come. Shawn not only is an excellent teacher, but he takes time to get to know his students and their individual personalities. He has brought our daughter out of her "shyness" and helped her to become a real performer. Her musical skills on the violin have grown beyond our goals for her. We have and will continue to recommend Shawn to all of our friends looking for a truly gifted instructor.

Shawn is a phenomenal instructor of young children! He has a natural ability to connect on a personal level and knows how to teach the student; not just deliver information. My seven year old daughter is delighted to meet with Shawn each week to learn how to play the violin and is truly blossoming into a person of artistic/musical integrity.

It is my pleasure to highly recommend Shawn as an extremely talented violinist and professional instructor. I have been taking lessons with Shawn for a year and a half and he has always displayed much professionalism with gracious endurance. His gentle demeanor is greatly appreciated.
Our 10-year old has been Shawn's student for a year and a half. We highly recommend Shawn as a teacher. He's patient, good with kids, and dedicated. As a result, our daughter is doing great! Shawn brings a great mix of expertise, kindness, and challenge.
My daughter Riley is doing well in orchastra (first year) and I really believe its because of Shawn. She is happy to go to her lessons every week and you can hear the improvement each time.
Shawn is an excellent teacher. I am older adult beginner with the violin. My lessons are definitely tailored to my needs and interests. I'm having a lot of fun and I am enjoying practice. My goals in learning violin was to have fun and to keep my brain working in improving. Thank you Shawn.
I am pleased to write a recommendation for Mr Boucke. I find him to be a wonderful instructor. Not only is it apparent that he loves music, it is very noticeable that he loves to share it with others. My daughter loves to go to lessons and loves to play her violin. I have seen her become a more confident young lady and I believe this has much to do with her music instructor. We are very lucky to have found such a fantastic person to teach my daughter.
Shawn is a wonderful instructor! Isabella has taken violin from him for 2 years, and her level of improvement, knowledge, and love for music have flourished under his direction. He challenges her to achieve her best, while patiently and with insight correcting when need be. As an instructor, he is available and accessible outside of class with any questions we have. I highly recommend Shawn!
My daughter, Mikhayla has been taking violin lessons with Shawn since August. He has helped her tremendously! She came to him with no experience whatsoever. He was very patient and understanding. She now feels comfortable with the violin and is excelling in 6th grade Orchestra. Thanks Shawn!
Shawn has been teaching my 11 year old daughter violin for several months. She looks forward to her weekly lesson. Shawn is very talented and knowledgeable and makes learning fun.
My son really enjoys his viola lessons, and always leaves re-energized with new skills!
