First Flute Lesson Tomorrow

I have my first flute lesson tomorrow. I'm kind of really, really nervous. I'm playing a piece called Morceau de Concours by Gabriel Fauré. It's a short little piece with a slow tempo of 44 equally a quarter note. Though, most of the piece is 32nd notes, so really it's like 88 = quarter note with lots of 16 notes? haha. At least, that's how I practice it. But I just got the piece today, so I'm really nervous for my lesson tomorrow. I think the piece is kind of cute, if a bit repetitive, but it's actually really hard for me. They've got arpeggiated 32nd (16th) note runs, which throws me off. But we'll see how it goes. Wish me luck!
