This paper describes an approach on real-time performance 3D visualization in the context of music education. A tool is described that produces sound visualizations during a student performance that are intuitively linked to common mistakes frequently observed in the performances of novice to intermediate students. The paper discusses the case of clarinet students. Nevertheless, the approach is also well suited for a wide range of wind or other instruments where similar mistakes are often encountered.
