I don't want to just use some freeware 2d platformer maker I want to make the whole thing myself this will be a long journey for me but I do not know where to start or what roads to take.

I was hoping the people here at gamedev.net would be able to show me what to do first. I have a little knowledge in C++ but that's about it and not much.
I'm also interested in making my own music for this But I don't even know music theory or any programs.

So basically all I have for myself now is a compiler and a graphics program.

I'm not looking to make anything spectacular but even this project this 2d platformer looks intimidating to me.

I'm pretty lost can anyone hand me a map?
