How about this (note the first argument 'self' which is the instance
itself in the second case):

def method_for_instance( message ):
    print message

def method_for_class( self, message ):
    print message

class myClass( object ):

inst = myClass( )
inst.method = method_for_instance

inst.method( 'hello' )

myClass.method = method_for_class

inst = myClass( )
inst.method( 'hello' )
