Hi Casimer

Really enjoying your tutorials and belated congtrats to securing the scholorship – much deserved. Just a comment on modal approach and my experience with introducing this concept to my students who are new to theory – usually approaching these scales as patterns put people off – or it becomes a memorising game – instead, I utilise the concept of just learing the 1 Major scale then I get them to start on different notes i.e. C Major (C to C) Ionian (D – D) Dorian etc…it takes a bit longer to command but then they aren’t relying on trying to remember all these scale patterns…and the parent Major approach opens up the improvisation possiblities…Cheers…CS
