How Do I Change Email & Password On iPad Mini?

I have inherited my late father-in-laws iPad Mini which operates using his email address & password.
How do I change them to use my MBP email address & password?
Will music he had downloaded & his iTunes balance also transfer to my MBP?

    The easy way to do it is to reset the entire iPad. This will erase everything and then you can set it up for yourself. His music and iTunes balance will not transfer as they belong to his Apple account. You can call Apple about that, but I don't think they will transfer any of it.
    You can erase and reset the iPad by going to Settings, General, Reset and then choose Erase All Content and Settings.
    Otherwise, you would have to go into multiple parts of the Settings app and sign out of lots of different places. Then you will still get stuck with content (apps) that won't update properly and other things that will be broken. Erase All Content and Settings is the way to go.
    If you are unfamiliar with setting up an iPad, then a visit to the Genius Bar may be the best way for you to get started.
