The 19-year-old completed his move to the Shrews on Thursday, where he will remain until January.
Burke has said that Villa boss Paul Lambert was a big factor in his switch to the Shropshire side.
"It's a new experience for me playing against men and more physical players," Burke told BBC Radio Shropshire.
"I'll be getting a taste of what actual first-team football is like.
"Paul's the one that wanted me to come here. He must like the style of football Shrewsbury play, because he says when you go on loan you have to play for somebody who'll suit your style of football."
Burke could make his Shrewsbury debut against Leyton Orient on Saturday.
