Do his lessons cost extra? Tell him that there is no point paying for him to have saxophone lessons if he will not put the work in, that they are a privilege and he earns them by fulfilling his part of the deal - practice. Nobody gets better without practice and it's just an expensive toy otherwise.

How often is he expected to practice? And for how long? If he's expected to practice 2 hours a day, every day (for example) it might be too much for him. Has he given you a reason for not wanting to practice?

If he likes the saxophone and wants to get better... he needs to practice. If he's not interested in practicing let him know you will sell the sax. ;)
