In the Video above I go into detail explaining how to transpose the remaining modes, Phrygian, Mixolydian, Aeolian and Locrian to the Parent Key of C.
If you are a composer or improviser you may find this video explanation and examples extremely useful.

Today it’s just a short video as a response to the Modes of the Major Scale.
Many on the internet teach the modes as just learning the C major scale and starting on a different degree of that scale.
They NEVER show/play the Chords,Slash Chords, Harmony, Pentatonic’s, Arepggio’s, Superimpositions, Transpositions to Parent key, Sequences of Tonal Flavour, etc.
This is really bad and wrong teaching, and, for a beginning improviser or composer this is harmonically devastating when put into a “Real” situation with Pro Improvisers or Composition Expectations.
Without transposing the modes you have nothing with which to compose or improvise with. It’s no good just playing a C major scale over C major. That’s not what it is.
The video above has a brief look at what an improviser or composer should do or will do instinctively.
