Susan Godoy of Hyannis, with whom many Upper Cape students learned to play the piano, has died. Ms. Godoy, 99, died December 22 at The Pavilion Rehabilitation & Nursing Center in Barnstable.

Ms. Godoy taught locally as a member of the faculty on the Beebe Woods campus of the Cape Cod Conservatory, offering private instruction to children and adults.

She was born in Boston and lived in the Boston area for most of her life. She was a graduate of Radcliffe College, from which she earned her doctorate in music.

Ms. Godoy was a music teacher for the City of Boston for many years before retiring. She assisted her friend and Radcliffe classmate Betsy Warren-Davis in developing a music listening course for schools.

A member of the Federated Church of Hyannis, she played piano there for several years.

In May 2004, she performed in “Celebration! An Evening of Music and Dance” at the conservatory’s Highfield Drive venue. She and the other performing artists for the event were all conservatory instructors who donated their services.

She leaves many cousins.

Her graveside service will be private.
