Scales & Modes is an interactive visual and audio reference for the diatonic scales and modes that are fundamental in music theory. View major and minor modes on the musical staff, see fingerings for both keyboard and guitar, and listen to the scales note by note, in any key. Violin and bass guitar fingerings are also available as an in app purchase add on.

Diatonic musical scales and modes are one of the fundamental concepts of Western music theory. But the large number of scales makes learning and remembering them difficult. Scales & Modes is a handy mobile reference guide for viewing and listening to a large number scales and modes, including all the modes of the major, natural minor, and harmonic minor scales.

Select a root note and a scale to display the notes of the scale on the musical staff, and click “Play Scale” to listen. Select the Keyboard or Guitar tabs (or Violin and Bass after an in app purchase) to view fingering diagrams for the scale on those instruments, and press the info button to see more detail about constructing the scale.

Whether you are a professional or amateur musician, taking a music theory class, attending a jam session, or writing a symphony, Scales & Modes can help!

Does not work since IOS 13 came out, freezes up.

The developer hasn’t done an update in over two years, so maybe this app needs to be pulled from the App Store. It worked great before IOS 13, now it freezes up when I try and select a key to use in scale or mode.

No more nicknames exist ,

Is not compatible with iOS 13.3

Will change review if/when it’s updated but as of right now do not download this app if you are running the current version of iOS. The app will not function

Not worth it

Simple app which makes you pay to try. iPad and iPhone versions separate so you have to pay twice. Not worth buying.
