My vote would be for pocket hole / screw joinery rather than dowels. The expensive Kreg jig is real nice, but I think Home Depot sells a General brand jig for a much lower cost.

I think the dual-purpose desk idea is going to be relatively complicated and will work poorly. It will be very difficult to get everything at the best height, which is essential for long-term comfort. Instead I recommend that you go for a conventional computer desk and a conventional X stand for the keyboard/piano. Set up the piano (in front of the desk, I suppose) when you want to play, and put it away after – it only takes a minute to stash away the keyboard and X stand.
