Valse Quasi una Sonata - Finished the Exposition

I finished the exposition of my piece. It isn't a sonata as you might expect, but is instead a waltz in Sonata Form. To provide contrast, I made the first theme have more scales and the second theme have more arpeggios, since the bass line couldn't provide much contrast besides key.

Here is a link to the piece if you want to give feedback on it:

On notating Swing rhythms

I am currently polishing up an arrangement for Glorious Morning for marching band when I hit a road block. You see, The entire piece is in a triplet swing, and whenever I have encountered this in marching band I always saw it as notated how to swing the notation right next to the tempo, but the piece has the first note both held and not in some places, so how should I go about notating this? Should I stick to 4/4, and just choose one to write as a triplet, and if so, what, or should I write it in 12/8 and leave a note saying "Conduct in 4?"
