Would it be a good idea to memorize every mode applied to every signature?
Or would this be a complete waste of time?

Probably not a complete waste.

Well, once you learn which modes of the major scale are built off each degree, it's quite easy assuming you know how to construct the major scales of each key.

That being said, knowing how to actually apply the modes is far more important.

what are you thinking in terms of other ways?


For key sigs, I would learn them based on their relationships to their parent major scale.

For modes in general, I recommend studying functionality, and common chord progressions in Major and minor 1st.

It would be the latter.

A lot of modal songs have a key signature that the mode is not diatonic to. Instead, a key signature is chosen that closely resembles the tonality, and accidentals are used in the score itself.

This is not true for all modal songs however. Some will have the mode's key signature, with a small note at the top of the score saying *"Key signature denotes " "*, or something similar.
