LED Room Lighting with Ambient Music Change

Hi guys,
 I have been reading through this site a lot and have wanted to get into a bit of electronics but I never really had a project that I wanted to start.  After months of deliberation I have decided on what I want to be my first project.

The idea is to have light bars constructed with LEDs quite like the following Instructable https://www.instructables.com/id/Light-Bar-Ambient-Lighting/?ALLSTEPS .  Where my project changes is I would like the lights to 'dance?' to the music.  Now my idea isn't dependant on music volume, for the LEDs to light up but colour change as well.  The only way I could describe it, is quite like the iTunes visualiser.

Now both my electronic/programming skills are very basic.  The electronics bit is relatively simple it's more the latter part of the project.  If anyone could steer me in the right direction, it would greatly be appreciated.
