Modes are basically different types of scale. There are seven common modes (plus many other less common ones).

Below you will find links to over 40 different modes tests.

Each of these tests contains 10 questions and at the end of each test you will be given a mark and a percentage. Feel free to repeat each of the tests as many times as you wish.

In this advanced section, you will be tested on all seven of the common modes - Ionian, Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian & Locrian.
The questions are selected at random and can be in any key.

hint:

Use the following hints to help you recognise the modes:
