Mozart and Haydn were good friends; Haydn offered occassional advice to Mozart, however he didn't really teach Mozart as he was already a successful composer at the time. Mozart dedicated the 6 Haydn Quartets to him. Upon hearing of Mozart's death, Haydn was distraught and offered to teach Mozart's son.

It is documented that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Joseph Haydn were good friends and enjoyed eachother's company. It is thought that they may have met around 1783-1784 at a performance. It is also believed that Joseph Haydn was somewhat of a mentor to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. He was much older than Mozart and was more famous at the time.
