Having studied Arabic music in Cairo, he started to work with Badiah Massabni, and then with Fatma Rushdi, where he performed and sung the role of Antonio. He started professionally composing music for the theatre and began a professional career working for the Egyptian Radio.

Youssef Wahbi cast him in a movie called Sword of the Executioner in 1946. It was the beginning of his long career in the Egyptian movie industry; he performed in and produced more than 36 films.

Fawzi composed the national anthem of Algeria. He was a pioneer in composing songs of children, many of which are the most popular children songs in the Arab world today.

Fawzi was the first to introduce the colour film laboratory to Egypt, and also music records printing factories.
