first project with micro phone and LCD charecter

Teacher asked for a project for the first term and I don’t know where to start
I must use a microphone and make some columns that are used in equalizers (I don’t know the name but there is a photo in the attachment.Naming it is also useful)and show them in a LCD character.
Sorry for being noob I just don’t want to mess up my first project
Thank you

Equalisers usually have multiple pots.
Spectrum analysers have columns of LEDs or other display.
