  • No. A scale is a stack of root notes of each degree of the mode. A mode is a type of musical scale coupled with a set of characteristic melodic behaviors. – user53472 Mar 4 '19 at 10:51

No. Modes belong to scales. The modes are seven different scales. They come from the major scale, and they are applied to give different "colours" to the music.
