help building a led lighting system that dances to music?

I am currently working on my portfolio to get into undergrad. I am trying to build this lava monster sculpture and work like the lava to be led lights that dance to music.  I know nothing about eletronics and would like to talk to someone about this so i can figure out my options.

That's easy!  Try hooking up LEDs in parallel with the speaker (observing polarity).

Instructables has some Christmas tree leds that go to a beat that you can dance too. Just take out the tree variable, and there you go!
 There are Instructables on the subject.  Check out https://www.instructables.com/id/Blinking_LEDs_to_Music/ 
Or websearch "led color organ"
