If you cannot borrow the flute from anyone, what you can
try doing is practice this in your head through the weekend and then review it
on Monday when you get back to school. Take your fingering chart (if you don't
have one, go to fluteland.com, online flute lessons, open the lesson window and
then the fingering chart), and for each note of the scale (Ab, Bb, C, Db, Eb, F,
G, Ab, etc.), try to picture your fingers pressing those keys on the flute. You
can even move them while pretending you are holding a flute in your hand. Do
this for both octaves. This is not the same as practicing on the flute but it
will help a lot. You will already know what to do in your head and your fingers
will move much easier, too. Good luck.

i'd second that suggestion.. take a pencil, ruler,
anything you use in place of a flute, and practice the fingerings.
