After completing a full degree in pharmacy (Leuven, 1970), Jozef De Beenhouwer devoted himself exclusively to music. As a student of Lode Backx at the Chapelle Reine Elisabeth (Brussels) and at the Royal Flemish Conservatory in Antwerp, he passed the final piano exam summa laude in 1975. In the nineties he perfected himself in the field of interpretation in Florence with David Kimball.

De Beenhouwer has performed in recitals and as a soloist with orchestras in most European countries, the USA and South Korea. He often performs in recitals with renowned singers such as Ria Bollen, Robert Holl, Nina Stemme, and Werner van Mechelen. From 1986 to 1996 Jozef De Beenhouwer was the official accompanist at the Queen Elisabeth International Music Competition for Violin and Voice in Brussels. He is also a regular guest at the Brahms Festival in Mürzzuschlag.

In 1986 he gave the world premiere of Robert Schumann's Concerto Movement in D minor (1839) with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, followed in 1992 by the world premiere of Clara Schumann's Concerto Movement in F minor (1847). Both works, left behind only as fragments, were supplemented by the pianist and published by Breitkopf & Härtel/Wiesbaden. Jozef De Beenhouwer has released numerous records and CDs, including works by Schumann, Brahms and Belgian composers on the Phaedra label. He has twice been awarded the Prix Caecilia for his recordings of Peter Benoits and Joseph Ryelandt's piano works. In 1991 he made the first complete recording of Clara Schumann's piano compositions on 3 CDs. In 1993 he was honoured with the Robert Schumann Prize of the City of Zwickau for his special services to the work of Robert and Clara Schumann.
Until 2020 he taught as a professor at the Royal Conservatory in Antwerp.
