Welcome to Arduino,

As you are new to it I propose you first spend a few days on the tutorial section and experiment with the code to get a feeling of the Arduino language first. What can it do and how it is done. The tutorial include servo examples and you will definitely find some useful parts of code .

2nd, you should tell a lot more about the goal of the project and the hardware you intend to use (types - links to datasheets etc)
The more info you give, what you tried, what worked, what not, what you expected, what you got etc, the better answers your get.
