cheers zoink - not sure what you mean by powered monitors?
My advice would be to get a decent pair of powered monitors. I suppose you could also buy two "keyboard amps" for running stereo sound, but I don't think it's going to sound very good.

Some examples are yamaha msp3, esi near05, krk rokit, behringer ms40

I use a pair of those (EON 510) onstage, paired with a JBL 15" subwoofer. Love 'em!
I use JBL EON 10"s and no other speaker on stage.Plenty loud. Buy one and get the other as you learn. Richard

I have no doubt that the "tried and true" approach you've outlined will produce sound and is better than no amp at all ... but I can't imagine it being a viewed as a suitable approach for anybody who's tried the power speaker approach.
An old tried and true method is to use a bass guitar amp with one ten inch speaker. A used 30 - 50 watt combo amp will do nicely.

I also have a pair of QSC K12's that I use for mains and a pair of K10's I use for floor monitors - if I'm running PA... if it's a gig where I'm just showing up as "keyboard guy" - I used to use my Motion Sound KP200S stereo kybd. amp - which sounds great... but now I bring the pair of K10's w/a small mixer - sounds even better! a killer kybd. rig - - and I can send my signal up to the FOH/main house PA from my little mixer. I'll be doing that exact configuration Friday night, in fact. If it's a big stage or outdoor concert - I'll still use the KP200S as my kybd. stage monitor behind me & run a Line Out from it to the main PA, to get keys in the FOH and stage/vocal monitor mixes.
I use a single QSC K12 for practice. When we play live the QSC K12s become the mains for our PA, and I have 2 QSC K10s for floor monitors, one for me and one for our guitar/singer. you could say I'm partial to the QSCs.
