    Go to this site, select "Manage Apple ID", and login with the old email address/Apple ID:

    Select "Name, ID and Email Addresses". In "Apple ID...", select "Edit":

    Enter the new email address and save:

    The new email address will have to be verified afterwards.

    If he tries too often, his iPad will be disabled.

    There are three options for him to access the iPad again:
    Restore it using iTunes, or using recovery mode to restore it, or erasing it using "Find my iPad".

    Here are the instructions:

    Hope that helps.
