: Hey,

: still working on it? How's it going?
: Don't forget to spell Haydn without the E between the D & N!

: Here's one way to learn it faster.
: Does your highschool have an orchestra? If so, tell the conductor that you want to perform the Haydn Cello Concerto in C with the orchestra next month. Bug him until he says yes. Now that the pressure is on, work like crazy! This method has worked for me. Good luck.

: : Hi, I'm working on the Hayden Concerto in C. does anyone have any suggestions that helped them learn it faster, or better in tune. and yes, i already know slow practice, and hard work and time, but anything else?

Umm, I think it's best to have the peice well prepared before you think about playing it with an orchestra.
Be patient. I know it's hard, but the long and tedius practice hours will pay off in the long run. It worries me a little when I see a post like this. Are you just wanting to learn it faster so you can start working on new peices, or do you have a performance coming up? What else are you working on?
Also, how much of the concerto have you learned so far?
