+1 on the metronome. The other thing you should do with that metronome, is set it slow enough that you cannot possibly make a mistake in either timing or fingering the wrong note. When you can play through the passage without making a single mistake at least 10 times in a row, increase your speed a little and do it again, don't increase speed unless you can hit every note perfectly 10 times in a row. (The key words here are SLOW and 10 times in a row, if you make a mistake, reset your count to 1 and you are probably trying to play it too fast) You will progress much faster if you practice without making mistakes, practicing mistakes just encourages making those mistakes the next time you play the tune.

Read everything you can about diaphram breathing and breath support. It helps so much in "nailing" high notes. I've been playing for years, and I still forget to breath correctly sometimes.
