If you don't want the keyboard to control VDJ, like because it's controlling a virtual instrument running on your laptop at the same time, then you set VDJ to ignore it in he mapping settings

If you DO want the midi keyboard to control VDJ you can map it to do so. There is an example below I did a while ago
But it will of course not be like playing a virtual instruments like a piano, because VDJ is not - it's a live DJing software. So you will be using your midi keyboard to DJ - not play the piano (or any other instrument)

VDJ can host VSTi (instruments) as well as effects, so I would assume it would be possible to play them via a music keyboard - otherwise what's the point? :-)
