Hello, I want to make a tesla coil but I can't make it myself based on the videos I watch on youtube so I want to ask how to make a musical tesla coil.
I have myself a coil of copper wire with

+Coil length (wired part only): 60 cm

+Wire diameter: 0.15 mm

+Coil outer diameter (wire part only): 27mm

+I don't remember the number of turns maybe all of the above can help me

I want to make my tesla coil can output a spark 3 inches long and use 12v DC

and the wire outside, I haven't done it yet. I want it to be customizable based on the above parameters

Edit:
I want to know what the circuit looks like and how many components I needed to create the circuit to make it work. Thank you

There are a number of kits available. Would you consider a kit?
Otherwise google for it, you will probablu find some non-youtube links.

I think the main key to success, as in many thingsm is look beyond youtube :)

You should read and then re-read those comments about high voltages and how they can be dangerous.
This project, in link below, does not help much for how to build it, but take a look at the second image down of how one sane university thought tesla coils should be safely used.
