A few weeks ago, I took a Calligraphy day class at the CAE. The classroom reminded me of my Tafe/Uni days and we had a fantastic teacher. She was patient and made sure we got the basics right. We worked on a letter type called 'half uncial'.
Strangely enough, the letter I had most problems with was 'K', I managed to get it right at the end of the day though. Trying to schedule practice these days are hard, I know, that's a terrible excuse.
Have you taken a class lately? I'd love to know!
