Seeking Advice: Selecting Electric Motor and Power Source for Musical Robot

Hello All! This is my first post. I am a relative novice to electrical work and robotics. I have experience wiring my own guitars and putting together effects pedal kits, but that is essentially the end of it.

Getting Started

I decided to chronicle my attempt at creating this robot to give hope to anyone out there who doubts their ability to do the same.

 I have zero experience with programming.  Zero experience with engineering.  Zero experience with anything even remotely (pardon the pun) related to robotics.  Also, though I am intensely curious about things, I'm not the smartest guy in the world by any means.

 In other words, if I can do this, anyone can do this.
