Audio Jack Signal Output for Arduino Nano?

So I am kind of new at this. 

I am going to be making a LED lamp that has a sound detector module on it to control the LED's. (This one to be exact https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5oRir4dck_w )

However i wanted to see if i could make a modification. If instead of having a sound sensor, could i just hook an audio jack to the arduino and to a speaker that would be installed to the lamp. The only problem is that im pretty new to coding. I would have no clue on how to interpret that signal going to the arduino.

Please help, it would be much appreciated

Do you mean "input" and "microphone" rather than "output" and "speaker" maybe ?

A sound sensor like the one he used is 1 dollar in any electronic store, why not go for it ?

because i was looking for a more direct input, something to give me a bit cleaner readings, and i wanted to install a speaker onto the actual lamp in order to have a speaker/lamp in one combo
