This is not really a discussion, more an informational post and to clear up any doubts about. I'm assuming this is correct as it is a biographical text.
Here is Dorothy DeLay's practice schedule that she gave to her students for those interested (there must be others other than me!):
Five Hours (all hours are 50 minutes on, 10 minute break)
1: Basics such as left hand articulation, shifting vibrato and right hand bow strokes
2: Repertoire passages (perhaps someone could give me suggestions on what exactly this means), arpeggios and scales
3: Etudes and Paganini
5: Bach or solo recital repertoire
Dorothy even has an answer for those with orchestral commitments during their study (probably most of us!). On orchestra days only hours 1, 3 and 4 are expected.
