Here are the 3 things you need:

  1. Website Host - Not WordPress.com (?)
    I suggest Bluehost as a web host. WordPress.com does not allow you to upload themes.
  2. Domain Name directed to your website host.
  3. Music Maker WordPress theme - MusicMaker.zip (?)

You should already have WordPress installed on your server. If not, checkout How to Install WordPress.
