What is your situation?

Can you afford lessons, get a teacher? Can you take music classes?

I think that the recommendations should be appropriate for your situation, and goals.

You might say that a D in an E major key is modal, but it's not; it's borrowed from the Parallel Minor scale. It's a bVII. You might argue then it's Mixolydian, but that...
