Wordpress would be the choice of many http://wordpress.org/  as is https://drupal.org/

Are you only going to have 4 pages.  This may be overkill?

I would not even bother with a CMS for something like this.  Just create 4 HTML pages with appropriate links.  Then you can tinker with CSS to make it look right.  I think this would be easier than trying to learn WordPress.

Learn about Vimeo.com  They can host the video for you and your web pages can embed the videos directly.  They have instructions and examples.
It's the same principal as youtube magento
you'd upload your video then share it that gives yu link to embed in your web page from the settings you can decide the thumbnail size.

Ray ,

I planned to learn the design concepts now to start the site from scratch.

Signed up an account with Lynda.com, can you tell me which courses help me get started to finish the site.

Thanks
