change in voice classification

question about voice changes.
i am nearly 17. i am 6"4, 202 pounds. i have been the same height for about 9 months, and i think i am done growing. i am rather large for my age. people always mistake me for 18, 19, even 20 sometimes. (which does come in handy)
to the point, when you stop growing does your voice stop changing? or not neccesarily? my teacher says i am a baritone now, but he says that could change. is this true? or am i pretty much done? or will only time tell?

Give it 15 years or so.
The male voice doesn't entirely settle until the age of 30 or so.
In a couple years, i bet your voice will expand a little bit, mine did, and i'm similar dimensions to you(and now 19)
when i was 17, i was a baritone, now i'm a second tenor of sorts.

I've always been under the impression that your voice was pretty much always changing, and that singing itself actually changes your voice as well. For example: if you sing nothing but tenor 1 for three or four years, your voice will naturally become higher.

Am I wrong?

Not really. You see what happens is you don't use your full range... so that portion of your voice doesn't get used as much if at all and then you can lose that range of your voice. But if you use all of your range then you will be more likely to be able to sing lower than first tenor. Your voice is a muscle.. it can become weak without use.

Peace and love,
Rhonda.
