On the Settings screen inside Synthesia, do you see a choice at the top for "Music Device Connection Method"? If you do, try choosing the other option in that list. Then, swipe the app completely closed. After that, does your device show up in the list?

Hello,
In the settings, I tried with "built-in-mididriver" and "android m midi" but it doesn't work.
Can you make me a screenshot or I can see how Synthesia should be set, otherwise the tablet should receive a special setting to communicate with the Yamaha piano?
cordially

If you tried both (and completely closed the app each time you changed the setting), it sounds like you did everything correctly.

The next step is to try some other MIDI-enabled app from Google Play to see if it also can/cannot communicate with your digital piano. That will help narrow down whether it's just Synthesia having the trouble or your Android device that can't communicate with it.
