Auditory strategies for learning a dead language?

I've decided to start learning Classical Greek, but in planning out my studying, I'm running into an issue. For my other languages, a lot of my practice has come from watching movies and listening to music in the target languages (auditory learner here). Obviously I'm going to be mostly reading it rather than speaking it, but has anyone found a good substitute for this? If you have a specific Greek resource for audio materials, I'd love to see it, but I'd love to see auditory strategies from people who have learned other ones (e.g., Latin) too.
