Are you planning on staying in India for college?

If you're interested in going overseas, there's a whole heap of places you could audition for.

Is there a certain style of music you're interested in?

If you don't mind moving to Melbourne, Australia, I'd tell you to consider applying for Monash University. They have a great music program and I believe a decent international student program.

Tell them that you play keys. A lot of the time colleges just want to know that a drummer/percussionist has a knowledge of music outside of rhythm (that they can play an instrument with pitches/read music etc). They probably assume that most drummers take up vibes, but tell them you play keys and ask if it's OK to audition using them.
