Tonality and mode are two different things. In some cases they might be related but they mean something entirely distinct. A lot of people don't understand this difference. I think it's important to feel quite at home with various tonalities and modes and be well versed in many of them.

So order to help you perceive the meaning of this concept once and for all, I decided to explain it today in this video.
