A ) TJP has samples of the sounds in the Hiragana section, so you can listen to those and imitate them to help your pronunciation
or B ) Get some files of actual Japanese people having a conversation and imitate that.
I recommend the first one.

It might be a little dense if you don't have any previous familiarity with linguistics, but it'll give you a lot of hints your ears might not otherwise pick up right away, like the fact that ん represents at least five different nasal sounds, or that most sounds in Japanese are similar to but very rarely identical to the sounds in English.
