Katalin Zsubrits is a Hungarian pianist. She was studying music / piano performance in Budapest, Hungary and the UK and won piano competitions when she was younger. After her studies she spent seven years in the Middle East (Kuwait, Qatar, UAE – Dubai and Abu Dhabi) as a solo pianist where she strived to create awareness of the benefits and importance of music education by teaching piano for children and young adults and organizing piano recitals for them.
In 2014 Katalin was the first musician brought in by Burjeel Hospital in Abu Dhabi, which began a tradition in UAE Hospitals to provide full time, live music performances in the belief that music has healing effects and creates a stress-free atmosphere. She has also made several solo piano recordings in Hungarian National Radio and Pannónia Studios in Budapest and gave recitals in Hungary, UK, Austria, Germany, USA, UAE, Kuwait, Qatar & Indonesia.
