President Harry S. Truman played piano. James P. was once invited to a party in the White House. 
While the President had a try at his favorite tune "Kansas City Kitty" rumor has it James P. muttered
"who is that guy at the piano?"
Whenever true, this event must have taken place in or before 1948 for in that year a leg of President Truman's piano fell through the floor of the White House and the Truman family moved across the street to Blair House, the Presidential guest quarters.
It all shows what a lively place the White House was, even during the forties!
