Looking up songs in German that include lyrics really helps me practice pronouncing some difficult German words. Even if you don't like singing, it still helps build experience on how to speak German well. I hope this helps a little ^^;

For any experienced fluent speakers that have anymore tips, I'd like to know as well!

What are some pieces that you normally use? Would you recommend classical?

Classical music usually doesn't have a lot of lyrics, at least in my eyes, or rather ears...And while there are German groups, I would recommend watching the German synchronization of movies you already know and after some training maybe some new ones.

I listen to artists like Andreas Bourani and Namika. I highly suggest listening to the songs, "Eisberg" by Andreas and "Lieblingsmench" by Namika to start off with. It doesn't matter what song you listen to, but you'd probably understand it more if it includes English translations somewhere to the song your listening to (Both songs I've listed have that!)

Anytime ^^ and the only group I know of is a group that I created on Kik. If you would like to join, the group hashtag is #Germanians we should have what you're looking for since we usually speak only German and help each other out when we need it-

Exhale air and move your lips at the same time.

Listening! Start to listen to more German! See how they tend to pronounce certain common words! Talk to yourself, repeat others ("shadow" what you hear)! Easy German is pretty nice for listening practice since they provide subtitles in German and English.
