How to set a music file as ringtone in windows 8 phone?

Hi friends, I am new to windows phone. I purchased Nokia Lumia 820 windows phone. I have copied the music files to the memory card (SD card) in my phone through my laptop by connecting using USB. Now I need to change the default ringtone in the phone with a music file. But while trying to change I am not able to find that option (search from the music file). 

It will be helpful for me if I get a reply for my doubt. So that I can change the ringtone.

Thanks in advance...
