How to replace a method in an instance.

In the program below, I want this instance to end up calling repmeth 
whenever inst.m1 is called. As it is now, I get this error:

Hello from init
inst =  <__main__.CC instance at 0x402105ec>
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "./", line 17, in ?
TypeError: repmeth() takes exactly 1 argument (0 given)

#! /usr/bin/python
def repmeth( self ):
     print "repmeth"

class CC:
     def __init__( self ):
         self.m1 = repmeth
         print 'Hello from init'

     def m1 ( self ):
         print "m1"

inst = CC()
